The CAFE TA Center has just published a new resource to help individuals with mental illnesses be prepared to take care of themselves in the event of a natural or man-made disaster. Disasters can be extremely disruptive, challenging and trauma-inducing for anyone. For those with mental health needs, losing access to services and supports can make things even more difficult. That’s why creating a plan before a disaster occurs is so important.
Please check out Disaster Preparedness for Persons with Mental Health Needs to learn what should go into your own disaster plan, so you can start getting ready for the unexpected today!
