Psychiatric News
Volume 44 Number 17 page 6-6

The mental health effects of natural disasters like floods or earthquakes are fairly well documented, but there are almost no data on the mental health consequences of infectious disease outbreaks, according to the Center for the Study of Traumatic Stress. The center is part of the Department of Psychiatry at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Md.

Nevertheless, from existing research and experience stemming from past disasters, the center offers a number of guidelines for clinicians and the public in preparing for the outcomes of a severe outbreak of novel influenza A (H1N1) flu.
