MOORE — In the mist of tornado season, many survivors from last year’s disaster are experiencing an “anniversary reaction” and are suffering with anxiety, anger, fear or depression.
This reaction may be as vivid on the anniversary as it was during the actual time of the tornado’s impact. State and local trauma outreach programs hope that those dealing with the stress of tornado season will utilize their organizations so that Oklahoma can continue to heal from last May’s traumatizing events.
The ODMHSAS OKStrong Community Response Team wants to encourage the community to acknowledge their “anniversary reaction” to last May’s tornadoes and are assisting people seeking services and support.
If seeking assistance or simply someone to listen, an OKStrong member is reachable by calling or texting 730-0368 or through email at OK-Strong@odmhsas.org.
