Updated Disaster Recovery Standards

Our Disaster Recovery Case Management standards were updated to provide further guidance to organizations responding to incidents of mass violence victimization.

The changes highlight the distinct needs of individuals who have suffered or witnessed man-made disasters, such as mass violence. Considerations around trauma-informed and culturally-responsive practices were strengthened and further incorporated into the standards, specifically when it comes to serving individuals with limited English proficiency, and LGBT and gender non-conforming service recipients. Recommendations regarding Mental Health First Aid and suicide prevention were added and we raised expectations around supervising direct service providers who work in high-intensity crisis situations.
