Disaster Resources To Aid Texas Flood Response
The effects of a disaster or traumatic event can often be felt long after its immediate devastation. Like the severe storms and flooding currently affecting parts of Texas, disasters can cause acute stress for survivors dealing with fear, loss, and uncertainty. For responders navigating the emotional toll following a disaster, access to disaster behavioral health resources is critical to fostering recovery and resilience.
The SAMHSA Disaster App offers behavioral health responders immediate access to information on all phases of disaster response. The app includes resources from SAMHSA's Disaster Kit and SAMHSA's Behavioral Health Treatment Facilities Locator, right on their smartphone. Free for download, the app is available on iPhone®, Android, and BlackBerry®.
