Mental and Emotional Support

Marshall Fire Mental and Emotional Support

One of the key lessons learned from previous wildfire and flood disasters is that these events can have a significant impact on an individual’s well-being. And it impacts everyone differently and at different times, sometimes right away and sometimes months later. Adults and children across the community who were impacted by the fires may experience normal stress response symptoms like mood swings, sleep disruption, and other stress reactions.

View steps you can take to ensure that you are taking care of your emotional needs during this time of crisis.
