Get free support from a hotline in Australia for trauma and PTSD

Many people go through traumatic experiences in their lives. They are more common than you might realize. That’s why there are 16 helplines for people suffering from PTSD in Australia. It can be helpful to know some of the signs and symptoms of PTSD:

  • Blaming yourself for what happened to you
  • Having uncontrollable angry outbursts that might not make sense to you
  • Repetitive thoughts about how you could have changed or avoided the traumatic event
  • Being easily angered or upset
  • Being jumpy or easily startled
  • Finding it hard to concentrate
  • Experiencing emotions that you went through during the trauma
  • Feelings of guilt or shame about a traumatic event

These feelings are a completely normal response to traumatic experiences. Trauma leaves an imprint on our lives that can profoundly affect our emotional wellbeing.

The symptoms of trauma and PTSD can become overwhelming. Assistance is available in Australia to help you unpack your experiences and begin making sense of them. You can feel seen, heard and understood through compassionate listening and support.

For free and confidential support with trauma & PTSD, consider contacting a hotline in Australia today.
