Mesa, AZ (PRWEB) September 7, 2005
Through its vast network of over 10,000 mental health professionals, http://www.Find-a-Therapist.com has compiled a list of those who are offering free counseling services to those affected by Katrina.
A major disaster -- e.g., fire, flood, hurricane or terrorist attack -- will not only leave a trail of lives lost, physical injuries, and property destruction in its wake, it can also result in its victims suffering from a severely damaged sense of emotional balance. In addition to healing bodies, mourning losses, restoring buildings, and replacing material possessions during the recovery period, all of those affected, directly and indirectly, need to devote time to restoring their own emotional equilibrium. (This can be especially important for children who do not have years of life experience to guide them.) Our network of therapists is responding generously to this ongoing need.
