Everyone goes through life experiences that are upsetting, distressing or traumatic. For example, bereavement or illness can leave people feeling upset and withdrawn. These may trigger emotional trauma, a specific kind of emotional stress that is so profound that it becomes a psychological disorder.

About trauma

Feeling scared



Flashbacks and nightmares

What is trauma?

Unfortunately, only a small proportion of people who have encountered a distressing experience receive professional help. Because no-one wants to have been traumatized and because persons who have experienced trauma tend to feel ashamed and guilty because they believe that they should have been able to prevent it or deal with it, they are often reluctant to share their experiences with others: friends, relatives or colleagues. This can lead to problems in social interactions, long-term strain due to insomnia and depression and also drug abuse.

What is PTSD?

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a very serious mental illness that is caused by a terrifying event and the panic it produces. This can lead to flashbacks, nightmares, hyperactivity, and exaggerated startle responses. If you have been through trauma, you should seek professional help as soon as possible.

Young adults and trauma

Trauma can occur at any age. It often occurs in young adults who have experienced an accident, abuse or violence. It also frequently happens in young people and young adults. They regularly suffer from distressing situations, such as 'sexting', for example. These young people usually relive these events, causing them to feel scared, stressed and irritable. They do everything in their power to avoid places where they feel unsafe or the person associated with the distressing situation. Often they withdraw, isolating themselves and losing control over their everyday lives.

Childhood trauma can have a major impact on a young adult's mental and physical health. At The Grange Youth Clinic we specialize in helping young people who have experienced childhood trauma. Our multidisciplinary team of therapists and doctors will work with you to provide all the necessary support, guidance and treatment.
