Coping With Tragedy

Coping With Tragedy

Following a disaster, people will respond in different ways, all of which are normal. There are several ways emotional distress may appear; extreme changes in activity, isolation or withdrawal, overly tearful; irritability or anger, feeling hopeless, difficulty concentrating or making decisions, frequent sleep problems, upset stomach, violence toward self or others; increased alcohol or substance abuse, feeling overwhelmed and emotional numbness or jumpiness. The resources below will help you find information for coping, talking with children and support for first responders. If you or someone you love is having a difficult time coping, don’t hesitate to seek help.
