Are you one of the 20%

After a distressing or traumatic event most people recover naturally and do not need additional assistance.  Their scary memories about the event fade and their feelings change.  When I say most people, I am saying 80%.  Which means about 2 of 10 people require additional support to feel “normal” again after a distressing or traumatic event.

The first 3 days after a distressing or traumatic event, you are expected to feel off balance, have trouble sleeping, and changes in mood.  However, if a lot of time has gone by, say more than 30 days and you still feel the same intensity of feelings, seek additional help and support.  See video for more explanation.
