During and after a disaster, people with mental health challenges and special needs are among our most at-risk neighbors. That’s why there is a critical need to educate, train and mobilize the community to build resistance for this vulnerable population and be ready to act when the situation arises. Our approach includes:
Taking Action to Protect the Most Vulnerable
- Building support for improved mental health services
- Increasing the capacity of health providers and community organizations to assist these individuals
- Training residents and community leaders in mental health screenings and support
- Promoting data sharing and community mapping to identify at-risk individuals
