Trauma Survivor Resources

PTSD and Coping

PTSD is a type of anxiety that occurs in response to a traumatic event and was first recognized in combat veterans. PTSD had defined symptoms that are present for at least four weeks. While all patients are likely to experience at least a few of the PTSD symptoms, that does not mean they actually have PTSD. The patient must have a certain number of symptoms for a certain length of time in order to be diagnosed with PTSD. Only a mental health professional can diagnose PTSD, but if these symptoms are recognized in the trauma patient, it may be a sign that help is needed. You do NOT need to be a veteran to receive help.

Trauma Injury Prevention and Outreach

Injury Prevention for Adults 65 and Older

Approximately half of the patients that receive trauma care at our hospital are aged 65 or older with the majority of injuries resulting from unintentional falls. However, falling is NOT an inevitable part of aging. Knowing your fall risk is an important step in preventing these falls. Find out your risk for falling and talk to your health care provider regarding your individual results to see what steps you can take to reduce your risk.

Memorial Hermann The Woodlands is committed to preventing falls among our older adult population. Our robust fall prevention program is available free of charge to the community and includes the following:

  • Free Tai Chi classes to improve strength and balance in older adults
  • Free Older Adult Fall Prevention presentations. To request a presentation at your location or facility, contact our Trauma Injury Prevention Coordinator via email, or
  • Call (713) 897-2831 for more information

Stop the Bleed®

Stop the Bleed is a 1.5 hour hands-on course aimed at providing members of the community, who have little or no medical training, with the knowledge and skills to provide basic trauma care and hemorrhage control prior to the arrival of EMS personnel. The course teaches participants how to learn three quick actions to control serious bleeding by applying direct physical pressure to wounds, packing wounds and applying tourniquets.

Stop the Bleed classes are offered to schools, entertainment venues, hotels and resorts, residential living complexes, businesses and more. To schedule a Stop the Bleed class at your location, please contact our Trauma Injury Prevention Coordinator or call (713) 897-2831.
