Emotional & Psychological First Aid

 Disasters can bring about significant stress. This is especially true if you have experienced a previous disaster. The good news is that many people have experience coping with stressful life events and are naturally resilient—meaning we are designed to bounce back from difficult times. The Red Cross provides excellent information on how to recognize your current feelings and tips for taking care of the emotional health of you, your family and your friends.  Each positive action you take can help you feel better and more in control.
