Often people experiencing or struggling with a mental illness have lived through experiences that are traumatic and have long lasting effects on how they live their lives. Painful experiences often bring feelings of depression, anxiety and social isolation. Trauma specific services do exist and they are offered in a trauma-informed environment that is focused on treating trauma through therapeutic interventions involving practitioners with those specialized skills.
