The Disaster Distress Helpline (DDH) provides crisis counseling and support for anyone in the U.S. experiencing distress or other behavioral health concerns related to any natural or human-caused disaster. Calls (1-800-985-5990) and texts (text “TalkWithUs” to 66746) are answered by a network of independently-operated crisis centers around the country, who provide psychological first aid, emotional support, crisis assessment and intervention, and referrals to local/state behavioral health services for follow-up care & support. The DDH is a program of the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) administered by the not-for-profit & National VOAD Associate Member Vibrant Emotional Health (formerly MHA-NYC).
The SAMHSA DDH website has pages dedicated to Wildfires https://www.samhsa.gov/find-help/disaster-distress-helpline/disaster-types/wildfires
with distress risk factors and warning signs + resources for coping, either/both of which can be added to any online resource directories set up in response to the most recent wildfires; the DDH also has an information page in Spanish @ http://1.usa.gov/1Gq1zfk.
