"Behavioral health must be recognized as an essential component of emergency response. Everyone touched by disaster, whether as a survivor or rescuer, is affected mentally and emotionally by the experience, and the psychological effects can linger. Integrating Emergency Management and Disaster Behavioral Health is the guide both emergency management and behavioral health professionals need as a foundation for any sound disaster preparedness, response, and recovery strategy."
