“We will be seeing an increasing number of our patients affected by extreme weather events. We need to be prepared to respond and I was grateful to be able to access the training resources created by Phoenix Australia.”

Stay up to date with the Disaster Mental Health Hub
The Department of Health recognised that during disaster, healthcare workers and others needed ready access to information and a range of resources that would support their work with disaster-impacted individuals and communities. In addition, the availability of more in-depth training means that workers can prepare themselves for subsequent disaster work during calmer times.
The Hub is designed for workers who are supporting disaster-impacted individuals and communities. This may include GPs, specialist mental health practitioners, allied health practitioners, emergency responders, and community and recovery workers.
If you’re having trouble downloading or accessing any of the resources on the Hub, please try a different browser to access the resource. If this still doesn’t work, please try restarting your computer. If you’re still having issues, you can contact Phoenix Australia here.
The Disaster Mental Health Hub is supported by funding from the Australian Government under the Disaster Response – Improving Mental Health Outcomes and Promoting Recovery from Trauma Program, and has been developed in collaboration
with our partners.
