A disaster of any type often leaves a trail of emotional destruction in its wake. The stress that follows a disaster can be debilitating. People’s lives are thrown out of kilter. As steps are taken to restore any physical items that were lost like buildings and possessions, victims also need to take time to restore their sense of emotional balance and actively deal with their stress. Stress is a very real problem and needs to be taken seriously.
