Help After Accident (MVA)
Dealing with the aftermath of a motor-vehicle accident (MVA) can be challenging and confusing. Many individuals experience a significant increase in stressors, which may include physical pain, limitations in one’s ability to carry out regular activities, relationship difficulties, job loss, and financial strain.
Common psychological difficulties following an accident include depressed mood, irritability, persistent anxiety or worry, feelings of frustration and stress, intrusive thoughts or memories of the accident, fear of driving, sleep disturbance, and social withdrawal. While the physical effects are easy to identify, the psychological effects are not as visible, and are often neglected and left untreated.
If you have been involved in a car accident, a comprehensive assessment can determine the nature and severity of your psychological difficulties, and whether or not you would benefit from psychotherapy. Rehabilitation therapy can help you cope with stress, restore mental wellness, and regain a sense of control in your life.
