For the Record: Psychological Response Teams for Disaster Victims

Richmond -cityhall-2007A-1Canada's response to the floods in Pakistan | RĂ©ponse du Canada aux inondations au Pakistan
A counsellor with Richmond Public Health recently travelled as part of a team to an area of northwestern China that was hit with a major earthquake last spring. The team is aiming to establish a team in the area to respond to psychological needs after a major disaster, and wants to promote the importance of being prepared to deal with psychological needs after such a catastrophe. The team is also working with the City of Richmond, and local organizations to establish a similar team here in BC. I talked with Dr. Chak Au about his experience in China, and how a similar team would work in Richmond. (13:58)
