Counseling available to help residents cope with tragedy
November 29, 2023
Counseling and behavioral health services are available as the community comes together to help those in need after the deadly landslide.
SEARHC has been providing counseling at no cost, and a private practitioner in Haines also is offering free assistance.
Former Wrangell resident and therapist Riley Hall, who is offering free counseling to community members, was living in Haines in 2020 when a landslide killed two people there. The rain continued after the slide, adding to people’s anxiety. “It was really difficult for people to feel safe again quickly afterward,” he said.
