DEALING WITH ANXIETY
Anxiety is very common during an emergency event such as a flooding and evacuation. This is a normal response to a very stressful situation. Talking to people and helping others can be both therapeutic and useful.
If you need further support for yourself or for others:
- call your general practice, after-hours GP practice or Healthline on 0800 611 116
- free-call or text 1737 to talk to a trained counsellor
- call Rural Support Trust on 0800 787 254 to talk to someone who understands the pressures of rural life.
- in an emergency, call 111.
