– SAMHSA E-mail Updates Bulletin – from 04/18/2013 01:14 PM EDT
In the aftermath of the tragedy at the 2013 Boston Marathon, people will need mental health support as much as medical support. Therefore, it’s crucial to help medical professionals, first responders, family members, and victims both administer or receive the proper psychological first aid.
This mental health awareness toolkit provides first responders—whether they are disaster response workers, parents, caregivers, or teachers—with specific tips for responding effectively to people in the wake of a disaster. The information is meant to help alleviate painful emotions and promote hope and healing.

The toll-free Disaster Distress Helpline, 1-800-985-5990, can provide immediate counseling to anyone who needs help in dealing with the aftermath of this tragedy.

Every effort to try to reestablish something close to normalcy is in the works. There has been a great outpouring of support from psychiatry and and the APA in particular (as well as other MH professionals). Continue reading Disaster Hotline Service
