ASERT does not offer crisis services through our Resource Center. If you or someone you love is experiencing mental health distress or thoughts of suicide please call or text 988 for support.
Trauma can be experienced when:
Post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, is diagnosis given to someone who experiences trauma and develops symptoms that make it difficult to function in their daily lives.
Trauma affects everyone differently. Not everyone that experiences trauma will be diagnosed with PTSD.
If you experience a traumatic event, you could have all, some, or none of the symptoms of PTSD.
