National Stress Awareness Month

April is National Stress Awareness Month. In light of the recent collapse of the Baltimore Key Bridge, it is important to recognize the critical role of disaster behavioral health in providing immediate mental health support, education, and resources to promote resilience and aid in the recovery process. The frequency and severity of both natural and human-caused disasters are increasing, leading to heightened stress and emotional tolls on individuals and communities.

Disaster behavioral health plays a crucial role in providing support and resources for those affected. SAMHSA is a leader in the field of disaster behavioral health with resources that aim to provide immediate support and long-term assistance to individuals and communities impacted by disasters.
