Originally called “multiple personality disorder,” DID is a rare mental health condition that causes someone to experience multiple identities. Often caused by trauma, DID causes people to suffer from memory loss, mood changes, and behavior changes as their brain switches between personalities. DID can cause someone to feel like they are outside of their body like their body feels like someone else’s, and like they are listening to their voice as someone else’s when they speak. Someone with dissociative identity disorder cannot control their personality shifts. This can be overwhelming, exhausting, and frightening for someone with DID and their loved ones.

How Does Trauma Cause Dissociative Identity Disorder?

Trauma is a complex response to a life-threatening event. When someone survives combat, abuse, accidents, natural disasters, and other catastrophic events, their body releases chemicals. These chemicals cause the fight, flight, and flee response. If someone processes these chemicals during the event, the event becomes a memory. If they don’t, the chemicals are stored in their body. Some psychologists call this trauma “trapped” in tissues, waiting to trigger a trauma response. These responses can include:

  • Anger
  • Mood swings
  • Rapid heart rate
  • Incessant worry
  • Sense of impending doom
  • Hopelessness
  • Emotional outburst
  • Profuse sweating
  • Nightmares

Trauma can be a cause of DID. After a traumatic event, the brain will try to protect itself. For some, this can cause DID to develop as a coping mechanism. It’s important to get a qualified psychiatric diagnosis and care for DID. At Harmony Hills, our entire staff is trained in trauma and associated mental health disorders to help clients feel at ease during their time here.
