When Tropical Storm Harvey flooded Houston, it was easy to see the effects. First, all the homes damaged or destroyed, and later on financial spreadsheets when the billions in losses that were tallied. However, many Houstonians are dealing with a less obvious effect from the storm on their lives – psychological trauma.
Houston Public Media has reported before on the response to flood victims mental health needs, with schools bringing in additional counselors to help traumatized students.
In almost no time after Harvey, school administrators were reaching out to organizations in Houston for help.
