If you or a close family member is struggling with the symptoms associated with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), we are here to help. Here at Sole Survivor, we have been through the PTSD recovery journey ourselves, so we understand just how difficult it can be.
PTSD can cause problems with sleeping, eating, concentration, and socialising; it can feel like you live in a nightmare that you can’t escape. However, there is hope. Recovery is possible, and we want to help you get there.
What Constitutes Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)?
PTSD affects people in different ways. The symptoms may appear straight away for some, while others may not develop until months or even years after the traumatic event has occurred. Plus, PTSD isn’t always a result of a one-off event. Repeated exposure to trauma can be just as likely to trigger symptoms.
At Sole Survivor, we don’t ask for an official diagnosis, as we understand that people might not have conventional symptoms or experiences relating to the condition. Instead, we offer a judgement-free space for you to talk about your experiences either in a group meeting format, through one-on-one sessions, or via our active listening service.
It’s our hope that we can connect you with people who can empathise with your struggles in a non-patronising manner and put you in contact with those ahead of you along the road to recovery for advice and further support.
