Researchers with The Center for Public Integrity are studying how mental health is being impacted by climate disasters (like wildfires) and are looking for people to complete a brief survey. If you have been affected by a wildfire or other natural disaster and want to share your story, read on to learn more about the study.
The Center for Public Integrity, Columbia Journalism Investigations and eight local newsrooms are investigating the mental health needs of disaster survivors and how the government is responding. Are you still trying to rebuild your life after a natural disaster? How has the coronavirus pandemic impacted your efforts?
If you have been affected by a wildfire, hurricane or flood in the last 10 years, or if you are a mental health professional studying disasters or working with survivors in that period, you can help by filling out the form on the web page. A better understanding of disaster impacts could assist public and private entities preparing for and responding to future emergencies.
