Nebraska Strong Recovery Project

Region 4 Behavioral Health Disaster Response and Preparedness

Disaster outreach work is currently being conducted by Region 4 Behavioral Health System to those affected by the March 2019 flooding in Antelope, Boone, Boyd, Burt, Colfax, Cuming, Holt, Knox, Madison, Nance, Pierce, Platte, Stanton, and Thurston counties as well as the Santee Sioux nation. We are here for you to offer resources and support during this exceptionally stressful time.  These efforts are part of a grant that is set to continue thru May 2020.

It is common for people to experience a wide range of emotional reactions after a disaster. Please review the Nebraska Strong Recovery Project Phases of Disaster visual for common emotional phases experienced after a disaster (Phases of Disaster). While Nebraskans recover from storms and floods they may experience one or all of the following phases. The heroic phase of disaster response (sandbagging and people pulling together) is often followed by a period of disillusionment (disappointment with aid and coping with clean up). Reconstruction takes time – and can be stressful. 

Know when to get help too. Feelings of detachment, avoidance, and apathy might be an effective way of conserving emotional energy and re-grouping. If it becomes a problem or interferes with your day-to-day life, it may be time to seek help. See your doctor or call the hotline for free, confidential assistance.
