Bronx residents still looking for ways to cope with the 9/11 tragedy
Facing the third anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks, many Bronx residents are still looking for ways to cope with not only the tragedy but the changing world as well.
Mental health professionals say the days around the 9/11 anniversary are particularly rough. They say there are many people still in need of help even though federal support programs have faded.
In addition to trying to cope with the tragedy, health care professionals say there's also the day-to-day stress to deal with. They say there are safety concerns especially with all the terror alerts and the war.
For those who still need help, there are programs available, and the Mental Health Association of New York City says that will continue. For information on programs call 311 or 1-800-LIFENET (1-800-543-3638).
