“Behavioral Health”

Mental Health + Substance Abuse

slide4
“It is important to remember that mental health intervention is a prompt and effective medical response to a bioterrorism attack. Early detection, successful management of casualties, and effective treatments bolster the public’s sense of safety and increase confidence in our institutions. Because the overriding goal of terrorism is to change people’s beliefs, sense of safety, and behaviors, mental health experts are an essential part of planning and responding.”

Statement from the Conference Transcript:

Responding to Bioterrorism: Individual and Community Needs,

October 19-21, 2001

“Mental Health is the linchpin to an effective response.“
