Abstract

Mental illness is not uncommon after a disaster. For those of us who work in behavioral health services research and policy, we recognize that advance preparation, early intervention, and post-disaster interventions, assist those whose lives are touched by disaster. Our matrix assists the collection development librarian by identifying services across the disaster mental health spectrum.
