Emergencies and disasters can harm the health of people and communities in many ways.

Often, the direct physical effects are readily seen, while the impacts on people’s mental health and wellbeing may be less obvious and are sometimes hidden. Minimising the suffering of individual people, families and communities, and averting the risk of emotional and psychological injury are important parts of the response to any emergency.

You can read more about this in the Preparing Scotland - Responding to the psychosocial and mental health needs of people affected by emergencies guidance document on Ready Scotland
