The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) has released a guide designed for outreach workers, crisis counselors, or other workers or volunteers providing support to rural populations after a disaster. The guide provides staff with knowledge and strategies to best support diverse rural communities. It considers risk factors, strengths, and common disaster reactions unique to rural communities to support best practices for ensuring disaster resilience and recovery.
