Coping with Disaster
Although everyone reacts differently to stressful situations, Mental Health America has developed the Coping With Disaster fact sheet series to help you and your loved ones cope during crisis and loss.
In these uncertain times, many of us may feel additional stress and tension. As we face the ongoing war in Iraq, a continued threat of terrorism, the economic downturn, and our own personal struggles and losses, we may need additional help coping from time to time.
The Disaster Distress Helpline is a national hotline operated by our New York City affiliate. It is the nation's first permanent hotline dedicated to providing 24/7/365 disaster crisis counseling. Call 1-800-985-5990; text 'TalkWithUs' to 66746; Spanish-speakers can text 'Hablanos' to 66746.
