Get help now from a helpline in New Zealand for trauma and PTSD

Traumatic experiences happen more often than you might think. Because they are so common and frequently highly distressing, New Zealand has 5 to help people dealing with trauma and PTSD. Symptoms might involve:

  • Thoughts of suicide and a sensation of hopelessness
  • Experiencing depression as a result of your traumatic experience
  • Repetitive thoughts about how you could have changed or avoided the traumatic event
  • Frequent nightmares and disturbed sleep patterns
  • Continued negative thoughts about a traumatic experience
  • Distracting yourself from horrible memories with work or hobbies
  • Blaming yourself for what happened to you
  • Feelings of guilt or shame about a 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 New Zealand 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 New Zealand today.
