David Collins, a forensic expert from Consett travelled to Sri Lanka to assist in a mortuary after the Tsunami hit areas in the Indian Ocean. Mr Collins said his role involved working for 16 hours a day, photographing and fingerprinting the bodies of the deceased. Upon his return to the UK, Mr Collins should have been debriefed by the National Police Improvement Agency, but this debrief did not take place. In 2011, Mr Collins reigned due to mental health problems. Clearwater Solicitors can help you receive professional legal services.

Step 1: Settled out of Court The National Police Agency, admitted David Collins should have been referred to an occupational health specialist and apologised for the oversight. Speaking to the BBC, Mr Collins expressed how his experiences have left him unable to contemplate working again, “"While I am pleased that I was able to go to Sri Lanka and help support them during the country's time of need, the illness I have suffered because of the lack of support from my previous employers has ruined my career and turned my life upside down.” He went on to say, "It's a horrible image, but it was like a production line of bodies that we were working on 16 hours a day, it had a massive impact on me psychologically." It was also revealed that Mr Collins was forced to do most of the work by himself as his allocated assistants were not trained forensic scientists. The matter was settled out of court with Mr Collins receiving £400,000 in damages. Step 2: What is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder? The NHS website describes Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD as “an anxiety disorder caused by very stressful, frightening or distressing events.” There are numerous instances after which a person can develop PTSD: involvement in a car accident, being the victim of an aggressive crime, witnessing violence, being involved in, or witnessing military violence, being present during the occurrence of a natural disaster, and being held hostage.

Symptoms of PTSD can present themselves immediately after the traumatic event or can emerge days, months or even years after the initial event. Some people experience insomnia, depression, nightmares and flash-backs as a result of PTSD. If the symptoms persist for more than a few weeks, you should seek medical advice. Children can also suffer from PTSD, and so if your child is displaying any of the above symptoms after a traumatic incident, take them to their GP at the earliest opportunity.

Once the condition has been successfully diagnosed as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, there are many ways it can be treated. The first step is usually to wait to see if the symptoms improve on their own. If this does not work, a course of psychological treatment is usually recommended. Among these treatments, cognitive behavioural therapy and eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing therapy are thought to have satisfactory results. Some PTSD sufferers may find they need to take anti-depressants to cope with their symptoms.
