Institute for Disaster Mental Health

New York DMH Responder Newsletters

IDMH is proud to work with our partners at the New York State Department of Health and Office of Mental Health to provide content for the New York DMH Responder, a quarterly newsletter that is emailed to thousands of healthcare workers, mental health helpers, and emergency responders statewide. These newsletters are meant to keep personnel up to date about current research, interventions, and trainings that can help them prevent and respond to disasters in our communities. We hope you'll find them informative as well.
