Toxic Stress and PTSD in Children

The WISH Toxic Stress and PTSD in Children report will focus on the impact of PTSD and toxic stress in children by examining how adverse childhood events are linked to later physical and mental ill health and how these risks can be mitigated.

The report will also look to examine how toxic stress affects the physical and mental health of child refugees, alongside mental ill health related to trauma in richer countries around the world and what can be done to mitigate this stress in such populations.
