JERSEY SHORE - A free program offers help to Sandy victims suffering from post-traumatic stress to overcome symptoms of depression and anxiety.

The Sandy Support and Counseling Project of Preferred Behavioral Health is helping victims who months later have begun to feel the effects of the catastrophic storm.

"When I realized I was sitting in the bedroom all day watching TV, I knew I needed help," says Georgie Brown, of Seaside Park.

Counselors will also make house calls for Jersey Shore residents still struggling with transportation issues.

A grant from the Robin Hood Foundation has made the counseling sessions free of charge. The program serves residents of Ocean County and southern Monmouth County.
