Harvard studies survivor's mental health

OrlandoSentinel.com:
"With names provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the Red Cross and numerous other relief agencies, the investigation will monitor 1,000 'people displaced by Katrina' from New Orleans, and 1,000 from other affected areas, including Mississippi and Alabama.

Rather than mere survey subjects, the participants -- spread across the country and representing a broad spectrum of age, gender, race and socioeconomic status -- will be known as the Hurricane Katrina Community Advisory Group. Their common experience is that all had to leave their homes because of Katrina.

i insist,alcohol is a way to cope! a good way! not to be over done though! ask the survivors how it feels to try and cope without it if you are a drinking person!
