Coping with Stress in the Family

Flooding can cause stress in many families. For some it may be more than they can handle alone.

Resources: Check out local services that can help you and your family cope with the stress. Some examples follow:

  • Local grief counseling services -- Many local hospitals offer support groups. In addition, members of local Ministerial Associations may have members dedicated to grief support.
  • Regional behavioral health care providers. Check out the Nebraska Network of Care for Behavioral Health map that serves your region, from the Department of Health and Human Services.
  • Community Action Agencies sometimes have staff available to provide mental health services.
