10th Anniversary Of Katrina


    A decade after Hurricane Katrina struck the Gulf Coast, much of the physical damage the storm caused has been repaired—neighborhoods and communities have been rebuilt, schools and businesses have re-opened. But a deeper, invisible wound brought by the storm remains. We bring you the story of a young man for whom the storm unleashed a torrent of difficulties that persist ten years later, and we hear from an expert on how the field of emergency mental health care grew in the wake of Katrina.
