Housecall for Health: Dealing With Sandy Stress
Hurricane Sandy has already uprooted countless lives, but her long-term effects may go well beyond some destroyed homes.
FOX’s Colleen Cappon reports in today’s “Housecall for Health”:
Trauma experts fear the psychological distress from Hurricane Sandy is growing. ¬†Daily routines have been turned upside down, and thousands are scrambling to find housing.
Psychologists at Columbia University say the leading impact of natural disasters is post-traumatic stress syndrome – causing flashbacks, depression and anxiety, and can even weaken the immune system. ¬†They say, with time, regaining a sense of control is key to overcoming the condition.
