DTAC resources provide helpful information to professionals in the disaster behavioral health field.
The SAMHSA DBHIS contains themed installments of resources and toolkits in disaster behavioral health. Each installment focuses on a specific population, disaster type, or other topic pertinent to disaster behavioral health preparedness, response, and recovery.
The Dialogue is a quarterly electronic newsletter that provides practical and down-to-earth information for disaster behavioral health coordinators, local service providers, federal agencies, and nongovernmental organizations.
