Disaster Preparedness

Stresses of everyday life can cause us sadness, anxiety and even depression.  These emotions can intensify when experiencing a traumatic event such as a personal or environmental disaster, causing our ability to care for ourselves and others to diminish.  Preparation can be the key to not feeling so hopeless should one of these events occur.   Use the links below to help you make a Mental Health Survival Kit so that you may prepare, respond and recover from a traumatic event.
