Affected by Trauma?
Trauma was largely discounted as a contributor to psychological struggles until more recently and unfortunately, this has led to frequent misdiagnosis and improper treatment. Although trauma has now been well established as the cause or a major contributor to many psychological diagnoses, the misdiagnosis and improper treatment continues. Psychological trauma can range from “mild” to life-threatening and you may not even know that you are suffering from the effects of trauma. Some common misdiagnoses that are especially problematic in terms of receiving improper treatment are bipolar disorder, schizoaffective disorder, borderline personality disorder, substance use disorders, eating disorders, and ADHD.
Trauma can produce or worsen just about any mental health symptom. Symptoms can be intermittent and unpredictable, they don’t necessarily respond well to psychiatric medication and they often need specialized
treatment in order to resolve successfully.
Trauma-related disorders are significantly underdiagnosed and people continue to be harmed by the denial of trauma as a major factor in both mental health and physical health problems.
