|A wide range of traumatic events may have long-term implications for the psychological wellbeing of people who have been affected by them.|
Being Involved in or witnessing any event where you thought your own or another person’s life or health was severely threatened can make it difficult to carry on with normal life. Unfortunately, this can have an impact on an individual’s work, social and family life and put strain on important relationships.
