Zika Virus Resources

This installment of the SAMHSA Disaster Behavioral Health Information Series (DBHIS) focuses on the behavioral health aspects of Zika virus disease. It contains resources to help with possible behavioral health reactions related to the increase in cases of the Zika virus beginning in 2015, and the association of these cases with microcephaly and other birth defects in babies whose mothers were sick with Zika during pregnancy. The installment covers these topics:

  • Basic information about Zika, the spread of the virus around the world, and ways to avoid contracting and spreading the disease
  • Strategies for addressing behavioral health reactions that people may have to the spread of Zika
  • Guidance for public health officials and leaders at national, state, and local levels in developing and delivering appropriate messages about Zika to support the best possible public health outcomes
