For National PTSD Awareness Month, we asked our Intake Coordinator David what he wants people to know about PTSD.
He says he wants people to understand “the way that it creates in people who have experienced trauma this simultaneous need for closeness with other people, but also this crippling opposition, or sometimes fear, of closeness.”
David also adds, “It’s never too late to open up,” citing clients of his who open up about their traumas sometimes decades after the fact.
