Trauma groups available for gas disaster victims



Family Services of the Merrimack Valley is offering a one-time trauma response group for people in Greater Lawrence who were affected by the Columbia Gas Disaster of September 2018.


Although it was a year ago, recent events have caused anxious feelings to resurface. Anyone is welcome to attend the group session, which is being offered at no cost. The groups will be facilitated by a trained trauma response professional and will be designed to help people process the trauma they experienced and identify skills for self-care going forward.


Individuals interested in attending must RSVP in advance by emailing lhowe@fsmv.org or calling 978-327-6639. Two groups will be held. One will be facilitated in Spanish and one in English. The Spanish group will take place Wednesday, Oct. 16 from 6–7:30 p.m. at 1 Union St., Suite 104, in Lawrence.


The English group will be held Thursday, Oct. 17 from 6–7:30 p.m. at 430 North Canal St., Lawrence.


For more information call 978-327-6600 or go to www.FSMV.org.
