Mental Health and Addiction Ministry

Mission Statement: Trinity Presbyterian Church Mental Health and Addiction Support Ministry exists to provide education with a focus on prevention, early intervention, referral assistance and to support recovery in a confidential, accepting and healing environment.

Understanding PTSD
    PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) is a mental health condition that some people develop after experiencing or witnessing a life-threatening event, like combat, a natural disaster, a car accident, or sexual assault. 
    It's normal to have upsetting memories, feel on edge, or have trouble sleeping after a traumatic event. At first, it may be hard to do normal daily activities, like go to work, go to school, or spend time with people you care about. But most people start to feel better after a few weeks or months.
    If it's been longer than a few months and you're still having symptoms, you may have PTSD. For some people, PTSD symptoms may start later on, or they may come and go over time. 

If you need help right away:
Call 1-800-273-8255
Call 911 or visit a local emergency room
