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.
The Maine Disaster Behavioral Health Response Team (DBHRT) needs more members to fully represent the communities where you live. Sign up and share your skills and community knowledge to help all Maine residents. Help safeguard Maine by becoming a volunteer.
