PTSD & Supporting a Loved One with PTSD
The Mayo Clinic has put together a comprehensive page with information about PTSD, how to cope and manage, and a resource section for loved ones of those who suffer from PTSD.
Understanding Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in Rape Survivors
Dealing with the after-effects of rape is a nightmare. The physical hurts can often soon be mended, but it's the inner pain that people can't see that takes longest. This resource can help to spell out what PTSD in rape survivors looks like and how to understand the complexity of this trauma response.
For some, in-person therapy may not be the right option. BetterHelp is an online resource starting at $40/wk, but that also has financial aid packages for those who can't afford it.
