The HSE has set up a helpline for people affected by the recent flooding in Inishowen. The help line is available from 9am-5pm Monday to Friday. The HSE has also provided an information leaflet ‘Coping with Flooding’ which is available widely in the community. This leaflet outlines the common reactions people often experience after a traumatic event, such as flooding, and what can help. The experience of flooding this week has been very shocking and as a result if you have been directly affected you are likely to feel distressed and emotional. It is normal to feel like this after such a shocking event but if you feel overwhelmed by what has happened and would like to talk to someone you are encouraged to call the HSE helpline to talk to a professional. The HSE Helpline for Flooding can be contacted at 07491 67558 between 9am – 5pm Monday to Friday.
