The Disaster Response State Grant was funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) from 2020-2022 to serve 26 counties in Missouri that were impacted by severe storms, floods and tornados in Spring, 2019. These counties were federally declared disasters. Youth and adults impacted by these natural disasters received behavioral health services including treatment for mental illness and substance use disorders. This grant provided opportunities for outreach, education and training for individuals impacted by natural disasters. Disaster-related trauma looks different for everyone. Recovery is possible.
