In this cartoon, Dima Dupéré depicts the many faces of trauma. From her experience working in the mental-health field, she has found that trauma has no one true face, but rather, differs for each individual. Physical symptoms, sleep disturbances, feelings of isolation, and lack of confidence can all be part in this experience. In an interview with the Trauma and Mental Health Report, she explained:

“I have shared [the cartoon] with a few friends who could either relate to or laughed nervously at what the cartoon was expressing. My hope is to shed light on reality.”
