Attentats du 13 novembre 2015

Dans la soirée du 13 novembre 2015, une série d’attaques terroristes a frappé Paris. Elles ont ciblé le Stade de France, la salle de concert du Bataclan et des restaurants et terrasses de plusieurs arrondissements de la capitale. Lors des attentats du 13 novembre, 131 personnes sont décédées et plus de 400 ont été blessées physiquement.

Six years later, the trial for these attacks begins in Paris on September 8, 2021. It is scheduled to last nine months. The first objective of a trial is always judicial. It's an important step for those involved, which also helps to restore the importance of each individual story. However, the trial can also reactivate painful memories. There are ways to take care of your mental health and that of your loved ones.

What are the signs of post-traumatic stress disorder?

Victims involved in the Paris attacks

The moment of trial can be difficult, as it can revive or reawaken the traumatic experience. Taking care of yourself is particularly important. We need to protect ourselves from overexposure, especially in the media: we don't have to see and watch everything.

It's also important not to bury your feelings, but to talk about them and not isolate yourself. It's not possible to erase the trauma, but it is possible to make sense of it, and get on with a life that may be different, but is still worth living.
