After a flood, the physical devastation to personal property and the community is obvious. These tragic consequences can be compounded by injuries or illness if certain precautions are not taken to protect your personal health and safety.
In addition to your physical health, you need to take time to consider your mental health as well. Remember, some sleeplessness, anxiety, anger, hyperactivity, mild depression or lethargy are normal.
If these symptoms are acute or if they persist, however, consult professionals at a Community Mental Health Center. (Department of Social Services site)
