Some events affect a whole community – natural disasters such as extreme weather, wildfire and flood, or man-made disasters such as explosion, chemical leaks or aviation crashes to name but a few.
In these cases, community mental health resources are not only potentially overwhelmed, but the helping professionals may be affected personally too. Having early access to education that empowers people in this time of chaos and that is tailored to the varied reactions they may experience is crucial.
KRTS Power to Respond® can reach many people quickly and effectively and provide a whole community with the crisis mental health tools they need to support themselves and each other. It takes into account the changing emotional landscape as people come to terms with the changes in their social structure and strive to rebuild their lives.
