Chaplaincy Alive! An interview with Patty Berron, Red Cross Mental Health Disaster Relief responder to Hurricane Harvey
Hurricane Harvey was the first major hurricane to make landfall in the United States since Wilma in 2005. The hurricane made landfall near the Texas Gulf Coast on August 25, and it meandered over eastern Texas for four days, with many areas receiving more than 40 inches of rain, causing catastrophic flooding, displacing over 32,000 Texas residents, and causing over 70 deaths in the United States. In response to the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, non-government organizations such as the Red Cross have worked to provide relief.
In this segment of Chaplaincy Alive!, host Susan McDougal talks with Patty Berron, Red Cross Mental Health Disaster Relief Responder, about her work and training with the Red Cross and the dramatic impact that Hurricane Harvey has had in her area. Patty is a member of the College of Pastoral Supervision and Psychotherapy, Board Certified Clinical Chaplain and Pastoral Counselor.
