NCDMH CONOPS is a resilience enhancement strategy for use by local communities, regions and states to build an evidence based and comprehensive mental health response for children and families. The NCDMH CONOPS is the first national model for building a comprehensive response for children in disasters leveraging evidence-based rapid triage and intervention strategies combined with novel disaster mental health incident command strategies. The NCDMH CONOPS includes a continuum of triage driven, evidence informed and evidence-based response strategies including basic psychological first aid delivered by parents, teachers and other community members. The National Children’s Disaster Mental Health Concept of Operations was supported in part by the Terrorism and Disaster Center at the University of Oklahoma Health Science Center, a member of the National Child Traumatic Stress Network.
