What does the PTSD'2' Logo Mean?
Why did we name our program PTSD ‘2’?
Secondary PTSD is commonly referred to as "the stress resulting from helping or wanting to help a traumatized or suffering person." If you live with with someone who suffers from PTSD, you may notice yourself beginning to "mirror" some of their behaviors. This noticeable change is called Secondary Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
What are some common symptoms of secondary PTSD?
- intrusive thoughts
- chronic fatigue
- poor concentration
- second guessing
- emotional exhaustion
Peer support occurs when people provide knowledge, experience, and emotional, social, and practical support to each other.
