Counseling Services for Storm Victims Battling PTSD

Tazwood Center for Wellness is offering counseling services for those who may be battling Post Traumatic Stress Disaster after November's tornadoes.
It is common for a person to experience emotional distress such as anxiety, worry, depression, grief, irritability, anger, etc. and behavioral changes such as difficulty sleeping, nightmares, avoidance of situations and places, withdrawal from family and friends, etc. during and following a natural disaster such as the recent storms in Central Illinois. These symptoms may present immediately; however, it is also common for these symptoms to present weeks or months following the natural disaster.

Many people will be able to cope with experiencing the natural disaster on their own; however, some people may need additional support, such as counseling services, to assist in coping and recovering. Tazwood Center for Wellness has credentialed mental health professionals that are here to assist you through counseling, education, and linkage to resources.

Tazwood Center for Wellness is offering educational groups to assist you and your family with coping during this difficult time, to provide information on how to respond to the questions of children and identify distress in children, and to provide debriefing for victims of the storms and those who have responded to help. Tazwood Center for Wellness is also available to provide individual/family counseling services and assistance in identifying needed resources.

Tazwood Center for Wellness is providing the following services free of charge.
