Addressing the Needs of the Seriously Mentally Ill in Disaster
Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences. Center for the Study of Traumatic Stress
"In the acute stages of a disaster, those with serious mental illness may function relatively well. Like the rest of the population, they often 'rise to the occasion' to assist themselves and others in a time of great need. However, persons with severe and often chronic mental illness are a vulnerable group whose well-being is especially threatened by the social disruption of the post-disaster setting. Addressing their disaster needs can mitigate or prevent adverse outcomes."

Citing HSDL Resources

Documents from the HSDL collection cannot automatically be added to citation managers (e.g. Refworks, Endnotes, etc). This HSDL abstract page contains some of the pieces you may need when citing a resource, such as the author, publisher and date information. We highly recommend you always refer to the resource itself as the most accurate source of information when citing. Here are some sources that can help with formatting citations (particularly for government documents).
