Quakes made you shaky?

July 11, 2012

The 7.0 magnitude earthquake off the West Coast of NZ on 4 July, plus the 5.7 near Turangi on 7 July, have rattled a lot of people.  Not only bringing back traumatic memories for Christchurch survivors, they have reminded the rest of us that another damaging quake could occur any time, anywhere.

If you are experiencing anxiety for this or other reasons, you can get help through your local GP. In the meantime, this is a sample of books we have in our collection that may also assist:
