SAMHSA"s Behavioral Health Disaster Response Mobile App
In a disaster, it's essential that behavioral health responders have the resources they need—when and where they need them. The SAMHSA Disaster App makes it easy to provide quality support to survivors. Users can navigate pre-deployment preparation, on-the-ground assistance, post-deployment resources, and more—at the touch of a button from the home screen. Users also can share resources, like tips for helping survivors cope, and find local behavioral health services. And, self-care support for responders is available at all stages of deployment.
The SAMHSA Disaster App helps responders focus on what really matters—the people in need.

*Be confident—review key preparedness materials so you're confident you're providing the best support possible.
