Katie Price Trauma & Me

Katie Price: Trauma & Me TV appearance with PTSD UK

This Thursday, 8th September, PTSD UK Founder and CEO Jacqui features in a documentary on Channel 4 about media personality Katie Price, where Katie explores her mental health and diagnosis of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.  

This one-off documentary was filmed in the aftermath of Katie’s car accident that hit headlines last year. In Katie Price: Trauma and Me, Katie discusses what drove her to total breaking point and what steps she’s now taking to prevent a return to those dark days. 

In this unflinching and revealing film, Katie investigates the complex condition of PTSD, and also meets others who have experienced the condition including PTSD UK Founder and CEO Jacqui Suttie, where Katie talks candidly for the first time about her condition.

Katie is currently having weekly therapy sessions and, as she continues her recovery programme, we hear what triggers her and causes her mental health to deteriorate as she asks how she can stop herself from spiralling out of control again.

Katie says: “I owe it to myself and my children to get better and never allow myself to go into such a dark place again.”

We’re delighted that our Founder was interviewed by Katie as part of this documentary, as it will really help to raise awareness of the condition and to further highlight that ANYONE can experience PTSD or C-PTSD following a trauma.

Having trauma and PTSD discussed in the media is vital to providing more insight and knowledge of the condition for the general public, and for those with the condition, so we’re very grateful to Katie, the team at Captive Minds and Channel 4 for inviting Jacqui to take part and providing the transport and accommodation that was required.

‘Katie Price: Trauma And Me’ airs Thursday 8th September on Channel 4.

Treatments for PTSD

It is possible for PTSD to be successfully treated many years after the traumatic event occurred, which means it is never too late to seek help. For some, the first step may be watchful waiting, then exploring therapeutic options such as individual or group therapy – but the main treatment options in the UK are psychological treatments such as Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprogramming (EMDR) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

Traumatic events can be very difficult to come to terms with, but confronting and understanding your feelings and seeking professional help is often the only way of effectively treating PTSD. You can find out more in the links below, or here.
