I'm a teenager

If you’re a teenager who has experienced a traumatic event, you’re probably experiencing a whole lot of emotions. These might range from anxiety and fear to anger and guilt. Alongside these emotions, you may be struggling with sleep, nightmares and feeling disconnected from others. Many people recover in a few weeks on their own or with the help of friends and family, but some people might have these reactions for a long time, and they can develop into posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). It is important to get help for your symptoms as early as possible.
