Trauma in the Wake of Tragedies

In the wake of harrowing tragedies like Orlando, people far and wide can experience trauma—even if they were not directly involved in the event. Signs of trauma don’t necessarily manifest themselves right away and may appear later.

The National Council has developed resources to share—whether you work in the medical community, you are just another caring individual or you are a mental health or addictions provider—to help those who struggle with trauma.
