Disaster Mental Health Large Print

Over the last five years, emergency preparedness has taken on a broader meaning nationally. It is more critical than ever that we prepare ourselves for a multitude of potential hazards in our rural, agriculturally based region not previously addressed in Northwestern Minnesota.  We need to ready ourselves not only for the types of natural and agricultural emergencies already familiar to us, but also for other types of emergencies such as terrorism, biological, radiological and chemical attacks, and medical pandemics. 


There are extensive efforts within Northwestern Minnesota to be prepared for various types of disasters with an appropriate disaster mental health response.  Information on disaster mental health contains resources, links and articles of interest posted on a weekly basis.
