Trauma victims may feel alone in their pain. They may feel as though no one in their immediate circle can understand the feelings and experiences of trauma. You are not alone in your pain and your experiences. Others have healed from trauma before and continue to live fulfilling lives following treatment. You can learn new coping skills from your peers in trauma recovery. You may also find inspiration in hearing their recovery stories when others are brave enough to share their struggles. People from all walks of life can be exposed to traumatic experiences, and as more people share their stories, others may feel inspired in getting help.

Social media movements, like the #metoo movement or the “Wounded Warrior Project,” have opened up the door for those feeling alone to share their stories of trauma. By bringing these stories into the public arena, many people have come forward to discuss their trauma. Many people have been inspired to seek help and treatment following these movements. Sometimes, feeling shame and stigma can make you feel alone in your experiences and can be a barrier to seeking help. You might find some inspiration from peers, who share similar experiences within group therapy sessions, on social media, or elsewhere in the public sphere. Breaking down the barriers of shame by being strong enough to share your experiences may help others seek help as well. Remember that if others can heal from their traumatic experiences, you can too!


The Guest House understands the power of sharing experiences to help others dealing with trauma. By creating an open and honest environment, we cultivate a safe space for those to share their experiences without the shame or stigma they may feel in the outside world. Peers can inspire one another in recovery, and recently we have seen changes in stigma due to increased social awareness about traumatic experiences and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). These changes have had a profound impact on reducing the stigma of getting help as others have seen that they are not alone. If you or a loved one are struggling with the effects of traumatic experiences, we are here to help. At the Guest House, we offer group therapy sessions to help peers understand that they are not alone in their pain. Call us today at (855) 483-7800 to get started on your recovery!
