Coping with trauma

Bushfire trauma

Bushfires such as those that recently affected the mid-north of South Australia can be extremely traumatic to residents or survivors, so it is important to know the signs of trauma and to seek help to get through this difficult time.

Children can be particularly vulnerable in a time of crisis. The loss of the family home, a loved pet or even a favourite toy (and even the threat of such events), may be amplified for a child and they may need extra support to try to make sense of the situation and start their journey to recovery.

For help with talking to children and young people about a crisis situation, visit the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) Trauma Information page.
