Struggling with trauma and PTSD? Contact a free helpline in Germany for support

Many people go through traumatic experiences in their lives. They are more common than you might realize. That’s why there are 5 helplines for people suffering from PTSD in Germany. It can be helpful to know some of the signs and symptoms of PTSD:

  • 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.

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

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