This page (and material in selected links to other web sites) provides lots of information about disaster mental health (DMH) concepts, techniques, disaster preparedness, and about volunteering with the American Red Cross DMH team. The site includes detailed material on phases of response to disaster, typical reactions to traumatic events, defusing and debriefing techniques, self-care tips that can help victims and relief workers, and planning checklists to help manage relief operations. The site's information is also helpful to those processing other non-disaster traumatic life events (e.g., serious accidents, sudden loss of family, friends, or pets, health crises, and crime victimization) covering loss, grief, and bereavement. There is also an extensive bibliography.
