What is trauma and what should I do if I need to talk about a traumatic experience?

Trauma is a response to an emotionally distressing event. Some examples of trauma include: being in an accident, witnessing or experiencing violence, or being affected by a natural disaster. Processing trauma takes time. For support, you can reach out to a healthcare provider, therapist, counselor, or social worker.
