Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is a condition that can affect a subset of people after a traumatic event like the Camp Fire. Symptoms can include nightmares or having memories about the trauma when you’re trying not to think about it to getting emotionally upset, having your heart start to race, trembling, shaking, or even getting nauseous when thinking about it. Dr. Anka Vujanovic is the Director of the Trauma and Stress Studies Center at the University of Houston. She said while some are at risk for the condition, the majority of Camp Fire survivors will recover and not develop PTSD.

If you’re feeling depressed, hopeless or like you can’t stop thinking about what has happened to you, your family, your friends or your neighbors – you’re not alone. It’s important to know that there are a lot of resources out there to help. That includes counselors who are trained in working with people who have experienced trauma. Gerard Lawson is one of those counselors. He’s also the past president of the American Counseling Association and currently a professor of counselor education at Virginia Tech. When asked what he thought Camp Fire survivors needed to know about trauma, the first thing he said was that it’s important they understand that everyone has different responses to a traumatic event.
