Interesting read. I reminds me that the immediate psychological impacts of disasters as well as the long-term impacts require sound mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS) programmes. It seems to me that these programmes tend to be underfunded considering the huge needs. Therefore, coping mechanisms at the individual level and at community level need be considered within MHPSS activities to achieve better results.
