Trauma Clinic

The Mind Faculty trauma clinic is the first of its kind in Malaysia. We view mental health struggles such as depression, anxiety, bipolar and eating disorders as a consequence of the trauma that a person has suffered - where this is a single-event trauma or complex trauma.


The clinic aims to empower the client by increasing their trauma literacy and support them in healing from the original trauma using our integrated approach. 

Who Can It Help?

The trauma clinic can help clients who suffer from: 

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

You may develop PTSD in response to short-term exposure to a single traumatic event such as:

  • Death of a loved one.

  • A divorce. 

  • A car accident. 

  • An assault. 

  • Abuse. 

  • Poverty. 

The symptoms of PTSD include: 

  • Reliving the traumatic experience, or the experience still feels ‘fresh’ 

  • Avoiding certain situations

  • Changes in beliefs and feelings about yourself and others

  • Hyperarousal

  • Somatic symptoms

Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (C-PTSD) 

You may develop C-PTSD after an accumulation of small instances of trauma over a long period of time. Trauma can be defined as any time that you felt unsafe. This can be the cause of: 

  • An abusive or torxic relationship. 

  • Bullying. 

  • Childhood neglect. 

  • Poverty. 

The symptoms of C-PTSD typically include the symptoms of PTSD with the addition of the following: 

  • Lack of emotional regulation

  • Changes in consciousness

  • Negative self-perception including feelings of guilt and shame

  • Difficulty with relationships

  • Distorted perception of the abuser

The Clinic

The multidisciplinary team of practitioners work together to help the client heal from the trauma physically, emotionally and mentally. The practitioners use trauma-informed supports to help the client feel safe and empowered.
