Boston Marathon Explosions

The Boston Marathon bombing did not only leave people physically hurt, but could end up taking a heavy psychological toll on victims as well.

FOX's Colleen Cappon reports in today's "Housecall for Health":

Last week's traumatic events have left many wondering what the psychological effects will be.

Top mental health specialists tell foxnews.com that while those closest to the blast are the most prone to emotional aftershocks, many will struggle to regain a sense of security.

Typical reactions are difficulty sleeping or eating, and high anxiety, especially in crowds.

Psychologists say time is a great healer, but if symptoms are bad enough to impair function, people should seek help.
