After a natural disaster, such as the one our community has experienced with the impact of Hurricane Florence, we focus on taking care of the devastation of the aftermath. Please also take the time to care for your physical and mental health as well.
Some of the more common things you might experience are trouble with sleeping, eating, concentration and feelings of anger.
