Study: Storm survivors find will to live

Suicide; Depression Skyrockets in Katrina Trailer Parks

I found the conflicting information in these two articles interesting.

Though the second article looks at a particular group of Katrina survivors and the Harvard study purports to look at a broader group of people, I find too many flaws and qualifications in the Harvard study, at least as it is reported here, to make the sweeping statements about resilience that are made in the article.

Edited because I meant "purport", not "report"
