PTSD COPING STRATEGY

Storyboard Text

  • No! How could you die but I'm still alive?!
  • It is so hard to believe something like this happened!
  • What's wrong Jamal?
  • It is said that some of the most common causes of PTSD are through a severe accident, an experience with combat, or physical or sexual assault.
  • I am just having so much trouble ever since that terrible accident. I have been having so many nightmares, I can't even sleep properly.
  • Most often, PTSD causes the victim to feel severely anxious and constantly dealing with a sense of hopelessness. It is an arduous journey to overcome PTSD
  • You don't need to stress yourself about this. Blaming yourself is the last thing you want to do. I know you feel bad about the plane crash but it was never your fault. If this keeps troubling you, go see a therapist.
  • When trying to cope with a health issue of any kind, the best thing to do is to always ask for help or talk to other people.
  • Thanks Marilyn! I believe that this will eventually pass over and I can recover back to a normal life. For now, I shall walk with you and thank you for listening to my stories.
  • The best way to cope with a mental health issue like PTSD is first to distract your mind. Other treatments can be as simple striking up a conversation with a family member, friend, or someone you trust.
  • Aww No! It will be alright Jamal. How about we have a chat about it?
  • Not everyone is comfortable when talking to a doctor of any sort. That is why if a family member or friend is facing PTSD, the first thing that they need is support from someone they trust. When talking to someone with PTSD, it is best to give your opinion clearly and to let them voice their own opinion.
  • If you still don't feel comfortable enough to speak out about the issue to a therapist, just call me and we can talk whenever you need. For now I believe that the best thing to do is to just distract you so lets go for a walk.
  • Even if someone is fine, it is best to continuously check on them to make sure they are truly fine. You can do this by calling them ever so often or catching up with the victim in person and talking with them because the worst thing that could happen to them is returning back to the state of hopelessness and loneliness.
