11.1.17 Version


Disasters are not uncommon events, and take many forms. Ranging from house fires to hurricanes and floods, and from plane crashes to the events of Sept. 11, 2001, and other acts of terrorism, disasters can rob us of our loved ones, our possessions, and our sense of well-being. Disasters can forever change life as we knew it, and seriously impact our ability to function. The mental health community recognizes that advance preparation, early intervention, and unique follow up techniques can assist those whose lives are touched by disaster.
