The experience of trauma can have a ripple effect throughout a person’s lifetime. It can influence the way they think, work, form relationships and the choices they make – years after the traumatic incident.

Adult mental health symptoms may be indicative of someone who never fully psychologically developed beyond the age they first experienced trauma.
