The word trauma often brings to mind war and early childhood abuse, but these are not the only circumstances that can be traumatic. Trauma is defined not by the event, but rather by the individual's response to the event. Events that are most likely to cause traumatic reactions tend to involve actual or threatened death, serious injury, or sexual violence.
Posttraumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, is developed when trauma reactions persist for over a month. If you are experiencing trauma directly after an event, seeking help is important to help curb the development of PTSD.
If you are concerned about a past trauma's effect on your life or have experienced trauma recently, please contact Counseling Services at 309.341.7492 to set up an appointment.
If you are experiencing a mental health crisis, come to Counseling Services during business hours. After business hours call Campus Safety (309.341.7979) or call 9-1-1. Click Crisis Sessions for more information.
