You might want to find out if your employer has specialist support available to help you deal with the effects of PTSD.
This could include formalised support following a traumatic event, such as:
- Critical Incident Stress Debriefing (CISD)
- Trauma Risk Management (TRiM)
A different TRiM assessor then came to see me informally and tried to help me organise my thoughts. He had been an EMD himself, and understood what I was going through. Emergency medical dispatcher, ambulance service
Or there may be more general support services available, for example:
- occupational health unit
- Employee Assistance Support helpline
- counselling, support or advice services
- peer support groups
- multi-faith chaplaincy.
