What Types of Trauma Cause Mental Health Issues?
There are a number of different events that can trigger mental health symptoms like flashbacks, physical panic attacks, high anxiety, paranoia and delusions, nightmares and insomnia, and other symptoms. Some possible trauma-inciting events include:
- Sexual abuse
- Physical abuse
- Assault or attack
- Natural disaster
- Near-death accident
Sometimes, you don’t have to be a victim of any of the above events to be traumatized by them. In some cases, simply witnessing any of the above happen to or hurt a loved one can cause negative mental health symptoms and create the need for mental health treatment.
