Have symptoms of trauma and PTSD? Contacting a hotline in Nigeria can help

It is never easy to deal with traumatic experiences and resulting PTSD symptoms. There are 3 in Nigeria that can help you begin your healing journey. Although each person’s experience of trauma and PTSD is unique, there are some common symptoms which include:

  • Overwhelming negative emotions such as guilt, shame, sadness and anxiety
  • Flashbacks of a traumatic event
  • Continued negative thoughts about a traumatic experience
  • An uncontrollable replay of the traumatic experience in your mind
  • Feeling unable to cope with your daily life
  • Feeling on edge and finding it difficult to relax
  • Blaming yourself for what happened to you
  • Repetitive thoughts about how you could have changed or avoided the traumatic event

These symptoms are very typical for people who are suffering from trauma-related issues. The pain felt from traumatic events is very real, and it’s okay to feel overwhelmed.

Trauma and PTSD can make you feel alone, like nobody will truly understand your experiences. But there are people in Nigeria available to listen and assist. Reaching out is brave.

If you feel like you might need support with trauma and PTSD, try reaching out to a hotline in Nigeria. It's free and confidential.
