When a Disaster Takes Its Toll, Will You Be Ready?
April 30 marks National PrepareAthon! Day for 2016, an observance supporting preparedness among individuals, communities, and organizations before a disaster hits home.
Preparation is also crucial for first responders, especially when fostering recovery for a community shaken by the fear, loss, and uncertainty that persists long after the initial shock fades.
Fortunately, disaster-related behavioral health resources can be just a touch-screen away.
In the spirit of National PrepareAthon! Day, SAMHSA encourages all first responders to download the SAMHSA Behavioral Health Disaster Response Mobile App (SAMHSA Disaster App). The free app provides users with valuable mental health and substance use information, tools, and resources for fieldwork in the aftermath of a disaster.
The free SAMHSA Disaster App is available for download on iPhone®, Android™, and BlackBerry®.
