Mental trauma can lead to psychiatric injury which includes conditions like depression, obsessive compulsive disorder – more commonly known as OCD, eating disorder, anxiety, phobias etc. If not treated these conditions may lead an individual to having self harming and suicidal thoughts as well as panic attacks.
A person suffering from psychiatric injury may be in for a long and vigorous treatment regime leading to hopefully full recovery. This can be a very challenging and difficult time for the victim as well as their family as they may be affected indirectly too.
Emotional or Mental Trauma from the Workplace
People witnessing horrific accidents are more prone to psychiatric injuries especially individuals who work in the police, fire brigade and armed services and see friends and colleagues get injured. Psychiatric injuries can be a result of a serious road accident, an accident at your workplace or in a military environment.
A lot of people who suffer such injuries feel they need support and help to deal with the reality of facing such an illness. It can be a very traumatic experience as it may affect the ability of an individual to carry out minor day to day tasks. This can lead to a lot of stress related disorders as the victim may no longer feel independent.
Having a psychiatric injury is by no means reflective of a person’s weakness or strength. With the right type of support and medical help it can be treated. Financial compensation will help an individual get all the medical attention they require to treat their illness and get back to living their life in a fulfilling manner. Psychiatric injuries can be treated by medication as well as counseling sessions where a therapist can speak to the victim and offer a wide array of support and further assistance.
