dissociative disorders reosurces support healthyplaceComprehensive information on the types, symptoms, causes and treatments of dissociative disorders, including Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID).

Welcome to the Dissociative Disorders Community at HealthyPlace

You've probably heard the term "spacing out" or feeling like you've stepped outside of your own skin. Those are common and mild forms of dissociation. It's a way of escaping reality for a few minutes.

More severe and pathological forms of dissociation often occur as reactions to very stressful events such as abuse, war and other forms of trauma. People with dissociative disorders chronically escape their reality in involuntary, unhealthy ways ranging from suppressing memories to assuming alternate identities.

You can learn more about dissociative disorders here. We also have videos on dissociative disorders and a blog on did. And if you are looking for dissociative disorder or Dissociative Identity Disorder support, we hope you'll join the Support Network Forums and Chat (our social network). Many times, sharing support and information with others who have common experiences can be helpful and comforting.
