In the time of a community disaster, we all cope differently and have a role to play in recovery. APA has curated and developed resources for communities experiencing disasters—from families and patients to psychiatrists and mental health providers.
Get started below:
Community Members, Families and Children
APA's Coping After Disaster page shares information on common reactions to disaster, steps to help, and resources to aid children and adults in coping with disasters in their communities.
Psychiatrists, Mental Health Providers and Other Medical Professionals
Curated by APA's Committee on Psychiatric Dimensions of Disaster, the Disaster and Trauma page provides education, resources and volunteer opportunities for psychiatrist, mental health providers and other medical professionals interested in helping their community heal after disaster.
APA District Branch Leadership
District Branch Disaster Representatives are identified by district branches to provide consultation, communication, and training in disaster preparedness and response.
