Trauma is one of the challenges that people face after experiencing a disturbing event. Examples of events that could cause trauma include accidents, sexual abuse, mugging, natural disasters, pandemics, military combat, lengthy medical procedures, kidnapping, or experiencing a life-threatening situation. The trauma can be due to a single intense occurrence or repetitive actions. Both of these circumstances can lead to physical and psychological effects.
It can be hard to overcome trauma by yourself, so it is advisable to seek professional help.
