From the Background: "The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) Technical Resources, Assistance Center, and Information Exchange (TRACIE) has helped develop resources and participated in ASPR At-Risk Individuals, Behavioral Health & Community Resilience (ABC) interagency/ external partner working groups in every disaster recovery operation for the last four years, to assist with issues related to disaster behavioral health (DBH), provider self-care, suicide prevention, and compassion fatigue. One continuous knowledge gap identified during this time has been the need for information for front-line healthcare and social services workers to use prior to a disaster to recognize and reduce their stress levels and maintain resilience during recovery. This gap was validated via communication with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), the National Center for Child Traumatic Stress, and various ASPR TRACIE disaster behavioral health (DBH) subject matter experts (SMEs) in addition to ASPR staff. These modules are designed for healthcare workers in all settings, but primarily hospital-based providers."
