Free Crisis Counseling Helps Harvey Survivors Cope
(TNS) – Recovering from Hurricane Harvey doesn’t just mean rebuilding a home or finding a new job. Long after one’s physical recovery is complete, the signs of stress and trauma may remain.
Texans Recovering Together provides free, confidential crisis counseling and referral services to help survivors work through their disaster recovery, according to a news release Monday.
The program is run by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission and funded through grants from the Federal Emergency Management Agency totaling $13.9 million.
Crisis counseling providers work through home visits and community settings for Texans Recovering Together rather than conducting sessions in an office. Counselors and survivors can dial 211 to be referred to local providers.
