PTSD Helpline: PTSD Support
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) develops when an individual has gone through a terrifying, shocking, or threatening experience. It is perfectly normal to feel fearful after a traumatic event, and most people make a full recovery naturally. However, if you or a loved one continues to exhibit stress and fear, even when there is not any danger, then the symptoms might indicate PTSD.
Coping with PTSD can be extremely difficult and often leaves you feeling isolated, afraid, and depressed. Seeking out a support group online or a PTSD helpline can be incredibly helpful when managing your or your loved one's condition. However, many find this to be a challenging step to take. It is essential to know that you are not alone. If you care to share your own experiences about managing PTSD or learn more about the challenges and successes others have experienced, the ExtendaTouch PTSD helpline will enable you to connect with actual people who experience the same daily challenges.
ExtendaTouch is entirely free and is packed full of stories, friendly advice, and resources that can help you feel part of a positive group. All types of people gather to share resources and opportunities that can help everyone live their best life while providing care for their loved ones. Further, ExtendaTouch allows you to personalize the level of anonymity you would like to retain within the PTSD support group online, making users more comfortable with sharing stories and answering questions about their experiences.
