The mission of behavioral health disaster response is to assist individuals in coping with the immediate psychological aftermath of the disaster, mitigate additional stress and psychological harm, and to promote the development of resilience techniques and coping strategies that individuals, responders and communities may be able to utilize throughout recovery.
