When a Crisis Strikes

Living through a major crisis produces many different types of feelings. You may feel
anxiety, depression, confusion and tension. These feelings may cause a breakdown in
our usual coping mechanisms. You may find it hard to function, behave in unexpected
ways or have trouble making decisions.
Although a crisis can result in a sense of anxiety, pain or hopelessness that makes it hard
to cope, these same feelings can serve as motivation to look for help and develop new
coping mechanisms.
