Trauma Helpline: Trauma Support

A traumatic event is a terrifying, life-threatening, or appalling experience that leaves someone emotionally scarred. Anything from a natural disaster to a horrible accident or personal attack can cause trauma. Regardless of the origin, it can be challenging for you or a loved one to cope with the aftermath and its effects. It's important to know that you are not alone and that there is plenty of help available.

ExtendaTouch is an entirely free helpline that provides online tools for its members to share information and support with actual people who face the same everyday experiences and challenges. At ExtendaTouch, you can learn how others have managed to cope with their trauma and the challenges that it brings. You will also have the ability to provide your own experiences and ask all of your most pressing questions safely and anonymously.

How can ExtendaTouch help me?

The ExtendaTouch support group consists of unpaid family caregivers across the entire U.S. ExtendaTouch provides online tools for its members to share information and support; perhaps even current news about:

  • Knowing how to avoid specific triggers
  • Maintaining a healthy social life and strong relationships
  • Finding the most effective form of treatment for you or your loved one
  • Learning how to overcome your fears and anxiety

You can feel safe expressing yourself or reading about your most pressing questions about trauma. ExtendaTouch is here to assist you in meeting other family caregivers to find information and support anonymously and securely. ExtendaTouch doesn't provide medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.

I lost someone to suicide I was directly helping while I was in a leadership roll at an organization. The trauma surrounding the situation has been something I deal with everyday and most nights. I experience nightmares and night terrors. I was also in the US Navy and served a critical role during an engagement where several civilians, including children were at risk of death.

I have supported children (including teens) who have been traumatized by horrific family/environmental situations. I'd be glad to exchange ideas with you.
