Overview

A disaster can be stressful for many people and can lead to mental and emotional disruption. At the moment, stress may be "good," in that it helps people focus, respond, and react to what is going on around them. Although, prolonged stress after a disaster- commonly referred to as post-disaster stress-is bad for human physical, mental, and emotional health. An adult's emotional reactions after trauma can vary greatly, ranging from minimal distress to extreme stress reactions. This publication covers various topics and signs of symptoms of stress and managing stress. (3 Pages)
