Krist Samaritan Counseling Center Offers Aid To Harvey-Affected Residents
Studies have shown that up to 40% of disaster victims will experience PTSD, depression, anxiety, or a combination of mental health obstacles, with first responders (professional or civilian responders), children and the elderly at greater risk than the general population. However, studies have also shown that early intervention is key.
Treatment plans are evidence-based, tailored to individual experiences and trauma-informed. Anyone interested is encouraged to reach out to Krist Samaritan Counseling Center directly during office hours (weekdays from 7AM-7PM, Saturdays 9AM-1PM) via phone: 281-480-7554.
