Virtual Forum: Psychiatric Illness Identification & Treatment For Mass Casualty Event Survivors & First Responders (Emergency Relief Series Part 2)
Location: Online Via PsychU.org
Description: Psychiatric illnesses are common among survivors of man-made mass casualty incidents. The symptoms and conditions experienced can even be experienced by first responders, and are distinct from symptomology experienced following other events like natural disasters. In this Virtual Forum, Allan Chrisman, MD, and Richard Weisler, MD, will discuss data related to the psychological and physiological impressions caused by man-made mass casualty events, including intervention strategies for coping with stress, the necessity of psychological first aid, and the impact that building resiliency can have for communities, survivors, and first responders.
