Professor Neil Greenberg, a member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists and the Health Protection Research Unit at King’s College London, said that some people who survive death can come back even stronger – while others may find the trauma more difficult to recover.

The Prime Minister left London’s St Thomas Hospital on Sunday.

After returning home, the Prime Minister went on Twitter to thank the NHS staff who provided care and support.

Johnson tweeted, “It’s hard to find the words to express my debt to the NHS for saving my life.

“The efforts of millions of people across the country to stay at home are worth it. Together we will overcome this challenge, as we have overcome so many challenges in the past. “

The Prime Minister has now gone to Checkers, his county retirement home, to recover from his shock illness.

However, a senior psychiatrist has revealed what the Prime Minister can truly experience under a brave face.

“Many people experience post-traumatic growth – anything that doesn’t kill us makes us stronger,” said Professor Greenberg.

“Most of us in life find that we are having a difficult experience; it gives us resilience and could make you more motivated and help someone do a better job.

“The most common long-term impact of traumatic events is not an impact. People remain resistant. “

Professor Greenberg revealed that people often suffer from distress, poor sleep, poor concentration and nightmares in the days following a life-threatening event.

However, over the next few weeks, these symptoms usually begin to improve on their own.

Although, for a small minority, the symptoms become even more persistent.

“A key point is how a person is taken care of after discharge,” he said.

“Good support, good colleagues, it is much more likely that you will recover and have it as a positive resilience-building intervention.”

“Whether your decisions involve running the country or running a household, if you don’t feel good your mental health will clearly make the difference.

“But it doesn’t have to impact your abilities – it could focus your mind.

“If you look at World War II and Churchill, he suffered from depression, he called him his black dog but he led our country to success.

“It would be wrong to say that you cannot lead the country to success. “

Professor Greenberg said that people who suffer from a traumatic event should spend time with others who can help.

He said it is better to talk to people you trust about the dread or distress of the experience than to avoid the subject.

“Try to surround yourself with people who are going to support you and take the time to talk about it,” he said.

“Trauma can have a more positive outcome – an experience can make a person say that I’m going to be a better father or brother.”

“As a nation, assuming we go through this, I think the proof is that some people will not remember it as well as we do now.

“It will take a while for things to adapt – but people will adapt to the new standard. “
