In the aftermath of the devastating tornado in Oklahoma, people
will need mental health support as much as medical support.
It’s crucial to help medical professionals, first responders,
family members, and victims both administer or receive the proper
psychological first aid.
This mental health awareness toolkit provides first
responders—whether they are disaster response workers, parents,
caregivers, or teachers—with specific tips for responding
effectively to people in the wake of a disaster.
The information is meant to help alleviate painful emotions and
promote hope and healing.
