The situation in greater New Orleans: An August 2, 2006 article in the The Times-Picayune states: “In a grim assessment of mental health in post-Katrina New Orleans, two New Orleans psychiatrists say the condition is critical and warn that it probably won't get better anytime soon. Depression and post-traumatic stress disorder are common complaints, but most mental health professionals have left the city…they write in today's issue of The Journal of the American Medical Association.”
The focus of AWB’s work in Louisiana is to help with stress and trauma. The testimonials from those who have received these treatments point to their success and the urgency for more (you can find testimonials and more information on the organization at www.acuwithoutborders.org).
