Coping with Natural Disasters

Published September 7, 2017

Natural disasters, like hurricanes, can stir up fear and other uncomfortable emotions. We worry about our safety and that of our loved ones. It could be that this event serves as a reminder of other frightening, threatening experiences in our life. We realize it can be hard to be away from home at such difficult times. Remember, the Counseling Center is here to help. The following are links to helpful tips on how to cope.
If you need further support, stop by during our initial consultation hours M - F 8:30 - 11 a.m. and 1 - 4 p.m. If you have an urgent mental health need after hours, contact assistance by calling 828-262-3180 and following the prompts to speak to the counselor on call. Stay safe.
