America’s PrepareAthon! and National Day of Action is a campaign for action to increase community
preparedness and resilience through hazard-specific drills, group discussions, and exercises. It
serves as a reminder to take action and practice simple steps to increase preparedness throughout
the year.
As you develop preparedness plans and collect resources for disaster response, including the
MRC’s Healthy Homes Campaign, we wanted to share with you a mobile application from SAMHSA
designed to support responders in addressing the behavioral health needs of survivors—the
SAMHSA Behavioral Health Disaster Response App.
The SAMHSA Disaster App provides responders with access to evidence-informed and evidence-
based resources—like Psychological First Aid and Responder Self-Care. The Disaster App also offers
current and updated access to SAMHSA’s Behavioral Health Treatment Services Locator, which
allows users to search for and map the location of substance use and mental health treatment facility
locations within a 100-mile radius. In case of limited Internet connectivity, the Disaster App allows
users to download materials and treatment locations to their smartphone before they deploy; and
resources from within the Disaster App can be shared easily and anonymously with survivors and
colleagues via email or text. Being prepared for disasters is a shared responsibility. It takes the whole
community—all of us—working together to effectively prepare for, respond to, and recover from
natural disasters and other emergencies.
Please consider sharing the SAMHSA Disaster App with your community, so together we can help
reduce the behavioral health impacts of disasters. The SAMHSA Disaster App is available for free on
iPhone®, Android™, and Blackberry®.
