Coping with a Disaster or Emergency
In previous weeks, we featured online preparedness resources that can be consulted before and during an emergency or disaster. Our last featured resource has a topic page that addresses the emotional needs in the aftermath of disasters or emergencies: http://www.bt.cdc.gov/mentalhealth/.
This site from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is categorized for specific populations. You will also find selected information available in multiple languages.
Here are examples of the groups listed:
- Patients and Families
- Teachers and Schools
- Healthcare Professionals
We hope you have found this series on emergency and disaster preparedness resources both interesting and educational. Please share them with others in your institution or organization.
