What Causes Mental Health Problems?
Traumatic events during our life can create significant distress and negatively impact our mental health in a number of ways. Trauma informs so much of our world view, and depression, anxiety and addiction are often rooted in trauma. There are an unprecedented number of resources for people struggling with trauma-related concerns, and psychiatry plays an important role in dealing with trauma.
Types of Trauma:
Trauma can be traced back to a single event, such as an experience while at war, a fire or car accident, or an episode of physical or sexual abuse; this is what we refer to as PTSD. PTSD can also develop when less overt types of traumatic events occur, including emotional abuse, repeated physical or sexual abuse, or exposure to violent or otherwise disturbing events. This type of PTSD is now referred to as complex trauma, or CPTSD. Childhood trauma can be devastating, as this is a time in our lives where we form core beliefs about ourselves and the world. “I am not lovable, “I am broken”, “I’m not good enough”, “The world is not safe” are common beliefs we internalize as children based on our experiences and carry into our adult lives, where they can show up as depression, anger, anxiety, addiction and a number of other maladaptive behaviors.
Understanding your trauma:
Dealing with trauma can be a difficult process and requires trained professionals to manage the painful recollection of traumatic events, understanding those events and how they affected our beliefs about ourselves and the world around us, and how to work to release the grip that these past traumatic events have on us. But with this difficult work and understanding how we chose to cope with these feelings is the first step in healing these wounds.
