Many of us are following the news regarding Hurricane Harvey, and its devastating impact on Texas. APA’s Disaster Resource Network (DRN) team provided the following resources related to flooding and hurricanes. Updates from the Red Cross will be provided as they are received.
If you are trained as a Disaster Mental Health volunteer, are interested and able to go out on assignment (usually 10 – 15 days, possibly longer), please contact your local Red Cross office.
