Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can be a difficult disorder to manage. Not only do people with PTSD have to cope with the emotional aftermath of trauma, there is significant societal stigma regarding mental illness. In TraumaRama #1, Kari Tervo aims to end the stigma and educate people about PTSD with accounts both honest and academic. She re-frames PSTD symptoms in a positive light, discusses why people with PTSD might be reluctant to discuss their experiences, and explains why psychological science says that campus "trigger warnings" are a bad idea. A presentation of crisis resources and coping skills round out the initial volume of this new zine series, which aims to be part memoir and part educational and support resource.
