How people behave during emergencies
Do people panic ?
Or rather are people more orderly, more helpful and more co-ordinated in their response ?
We are particularly interested in how people responded to the bombs that went off in London on Thursday, 7th July 2005.
Were you involved in the events
in any way ?
If so we need your account.

'We have also recently designed a questionnaire that looks at people's emotional responses and degree of coping since July 7th and the role of support networks, both formal and informal in these processes. We hope that this will help develop theory and practice in the area of treating stress and trauma after disasters. If we get enough responses we plan to publish it as a paper in an influential medical journal, such as the Lancet or British Medical Journal, so your responses may help advance knowledge in the area of diagnosis and treatment of conditions such as PTSD.
