A Few Mental Health Reminders in the Wake of Hurrican Sandy

As we’re working towards getting back to our normal routines, it is important to consider the impact the storm may have had on your emotional state. Witnessing a natural disaster like a hurricane can be overwhelming and the experience of losing power, losing access to care, evacuating your home, and the disruption of your routine can be unsettling.

We’d like to encourage you to take a quick inventory of yourself now that some time has passed since the storm (though clearly, there are many who continue to cope with tremendous hardship). Please click here for more information about What Can Help, What Doesn’t Help and When Do I Need Extra Help?
