AACAP Natural Disaster Resources

As an association dedicated to protecting the health of children and families everywhere, we are deeply saddened by events in Puerto Rico, New South Wales, and the Philippines. Natural disasters can have devastating effects on the mental health of the communities they uproot. Below are resources for talking to children about disasters, as well as resources for clinicians, volunteers, and organizations. These resources are a starting point in addressing the trauma that affects victims of disasters and are not intended to serve as a substitute for psychiatric treatment or counseling.
