This page provides information about trauma for Ukrainian refugees and their host families in Buckinghamshire.
Many of us will experience trauma at some point in our lives. With time, most people recover from their experiences without needing professional help. However, for a significant proportion of people the effects of trauma last for much longer. Fortunately, there are a range of excellent psychological therapies that can help. There is also a lot you can do to support someone who has survived trauma. Please find below information on how trauma can affect you, reactions to trauma and understanding PTSD.
