Terror attacks can be traumatic for all those involved, either directly or indirectly, and can have a lasting psychological impact.
Although people can respond to trauma differently, common reactions include:
feelings of fear, anger, shame and guilt
unwanted distressing thoughts or memories of the incident
nightmares or difficulty sleeping
loss of interest in previously enjoyed hobbies and activities
These are normal reactions to a traumatic event and typically improve in the days and weeks following the incident. However, for some people, they can last longer and have an impact on your day to day life and wellbeing.
We offer two specialist support services for UK adults whose mental health and/or emotional wellbeing has been affected by terror attacks.
