In the context of mental health, the term “trigger” refers to a situation or experience that acts as a catalyst for an emotional, physical, or behavioral response. When somebody is triggered by something or someone, they might have a severe reaction that leads to an increase in mental discomfort, such as being upset, angry, or another unpleasant emotion.
An emotional trigger is something that causes distress. Emotional reactions to triggers can look like crying, unexplained anger, increased anxiety, feelings of panic, physical symptoms, and more.
Common triggers that create an emotional response could be anything from hearing a certain song, being in an unsafe environment, or remembering back to a traumatic event. Everybody has their own emotional triggers, which is why it’s important to receive guidance from mental health professionals—with the right support, you will be able to begin to identify your emotional triggers and learn how to regulate your response.
