Four centers for the treatment of emotional trauma will open in Haifa, Safed, Nahariya and Tiberias on Sunday to follow up on patients who suffered anxiety attacks from Hizbullah's rocket attacks during the war, the Health Ministry announced on Thursday. The special cabinet committee for strengthening the North decided to allocate NIS 4.5 million for these centers, which will open at Rambam Medical Center, Ziv Hospital, Western Galilee Government Hospital and Poriya Hospital. Doctors and nurses will undergo special training sessions to identify patients suffering from anxiety and stress so they prevent them from developing in post-traumatic stress disorder.
