Legend of Korra: An Exploration of PTSD

Korra Alone and Book 4 of Legend of Korra have one of the most interesting (in my opinion) explorations of the trauma that Avatar’s can go through, focusing of course on Korra herself. As someone who struggles with PTSD, the exploration seen with Korra intrigued me – as such, I had to look into it at a deeper level.


Everyone needs a little help now and then, and that’s OK. If you or someone you know, need support or maybe you just need someone to understand, there is always someone to call.
