Institute for Disaster Mental Health 12th annual conference

April 17, 2015

The Institute for Disaster Mental Health will hold their 12th annual conference on Friday, April 17, 2015 in New Paltz, NY.This year’s topic will be Preparing for the Health and Mental Health Consequences of Climate Change.

While the 11th conference last year concerned the importance of communications in disaster preparedness and response, several presenters also emphasized the need to prepare for the diverse threats presented by climate change. Climate change can include economic changes, increasing heat waves, inland and coastal flooding, landslides, air pollution, drought, water scarcity, and extreme weather.

The day’s talks and workshops will focus on problem-solving and practical solutions to the serious health, public health, and mental health consequences of climate change. Workshops will be tailored for different professional groups likely to be involved in the response to large-in-scope disasters caused by climate change and delivered by leaders in the emergency management, health, and mental health fields with plenty of the “on the ground” experience.
