I'm 17 and struggle with numerous mental health disorders the most recent being mild PTSD (due to being raped when I was 16.) I find that I get triggered easily and any mention of rape or my experience sends me into floods of tears and an uncontrollable urge to self-harm. I'm under CAMHS but they don't seem to mention it because I'm not ready to talk about it - I physically can't seem to get any words out when I try to talk about it. I don't know what to do anymore cause I can't cope with this massive weight on my shoulders but I also can't talk about it and I'm scared of it turning into a more severe case of PTSD . I did consider group therapy so that I could get help from other people and have the opportunity to talk about my experience if I want to but not be forced to but I can't seem to find anywhere that offers this for under 18s. Does anyone have any advice?
Thanks in advance
