Suggested Disaster Mental Health Interventions in Kenya

The current crisis in Kenya, involving killings occasioned both by agents of state and the citizenry, has exposed how woefully inadequate our disaster mental health services are. We were ill prepared to deal with a disaster of this (or any) magnitude.
Subsequently I have put together some suggestions for the running of a disaster mental health service at least at this emergent phase. More detailed guidelines will come out after discussions of this and other drafts.
My Suggestions are available here.
