Getting Help after Hurricane Sandy (con’t)

Updated: Mar 7, 2019

John D. Weaver, LCSW, BCD, ACSW, a founding partner of EYE OF THE STORM, Inc. (Nazareth, PA), and social worker provided some tips to help the victims of Sandy. EYE OF THE STORM, Inc is a company that provides private mental health consultation and training services. The firm specializes in disaster mental health, crisis intervention, and risk management related training and support.

He says that it’s normal to be scared; it helps fight the fear if you are prepared and adds that it’s helpful to get APPs that help us be prepared. Be sure to get the @RedCross APPs http://rdcrss.org/SNQtZh

One great tip he provides is to diminish the stress and fear of disaster by limiting exposure to the sights/sounds of TV news/weather reports. #selfcare #RedCross and to use social media and a smartphone to stay connected with friends/family. This is a great way to fight the stress of #Sandy #selfcare.

Also, you can contact the Disaster Distress Helpline, a program of @samhsagov, @distressline. It offers 24/7 crisis counseling; call 1-800-985-5990 or text TalkWithUs to 66746.
