Virtual Mental Health Supporter During a Disaster Response

Save to Favorites

American Red Cross - Tennessee Region

logo

Disaster Mental Health interventions are short-term and can range from as little as

five minutes of support to a much longer period. Client engagement will occur once

or twice, but generally no more than three times. The most effective contact will often

involve psychological first aid, problem solving, facilitating the use of good coping

skills, psychoeducation and task-centered activities to address basic needs and

reduce stress.
