Hundreds of people got involved in rescues who have never before worked with trauma and are ill-prepared to deal with the aftermath. We do not want those folks to lose jobs or marriages or turn to substances in order to self-medicate symptoms, simply because they can’t afford services to recover from their good deeds. The physical and psychological well-being of those experiencing severe and long-term stress, as well as your future ability to function after a prolonged period of stress, depends upon how you manage it from the beginning and the degree to which you attend to emotional, physical and psychological needs.

Thousands of citizens across Houston do not have benefits to access debriefing or other mental health services, but IA is here for you! The first three individual trauma sessions & unlimited debriefing groups are FREE.
