On Friday, Assemblyman Chad Lupinacci (R,C,WF,I-Huntington Station) met with members of the Long Island Trauma Recovery Network (LI TRN). LI TRN is made up of psychotherapists who provide therapy designed to help individuals, both civilians and first responders, suffering from acute stress conditions or post-traumatic stress disorders (PTSD) following a community disaster.
“Traumatic events in our community can have a profound effect on those involved, be it those impacted or those we ask to respond at a moment’s notice,” said Lupinacci. “Fortunately, the team at LI TRN works hard to provide assistance to those who need it following a tragic event. From the civilians involved, to the first responders who are asked to rush in, it is important that those impacted receive the care they deserve. I want to thank LI TRN for taking the time to meet with me and discuss the goals of their organization.”
Long Island Trauma Recovery Network was founded in 2011. Since its inception, it has provided trauma relief during environmental or situational disasters to our communities and first responders.
