Here is a NYC Department of Health PDF, "Tips on Coping with Disasters and Other Stressful and Traumatic Events, http://www.nyc.gov/html/doh/downloads/pdf/mhdpr/em-cope-stress-events.pdf
"Know How To Take Care of YourselfIn the month following the blackout, the NYC Dept of Health, the Red Cross, JBFCS, and government officials were not reliable resources. 1-800-LIFENET referred you to the JBCFS/NYC Self Help Center, which was not returning calls, and JCBFS referred you to 1-800-LIFENET. If anyone (including the media) provides you with a telephone number or website, make sure that they have checked out the information in advance. Getting caught in a referral merry-go-round only adds to your stress.
More misinformation: The lady from Gourverneur Healthcare Services got it wrong; Dr. Charles Herr was considering providing a group for current patients.

At right is a photo of James King. He lives in Crown Heights. You can try to reach him at 518-265-2195, but you'll undoubtedly get an answering machine that hasn't been set up yet. He thinks the Lower Manhattan blackout is funny. He thinks everyone who lives in Manhattan is rich. He used to write for the Pheonix New Times, and was known as a "favorite son" of Mike Lacey, Executive Editor of the corporate owner of The Village Voice, Village Voice Media, headquartered in Pheonix. He is a blogger who helps Village Voice advertisers by writing outrageous things and getting people who read him to join in on the fun. He is a maggot who attracts other maggots. Hey, even maggots deserve a "voice," no? Here's to free speech, and uncivil discourse! He and his minions tear down civilization while accusing others of doing so. An amazingly pathetic creature, this James King.
James King - or his lawyers at The Villager Voice - even set up a Facebook page with my photo so they could claim that my photo was public and could be used without my permission in their blog. Amazing, what on-line assholes can do.
