Disaster Response Network
The Psychologists’ Association of Alberta Disaster Response Network (PAA DRN) targets the psychological well being/mental health needs of disaster victims and responders who are involved in disasters with focus on serving those who have suffered trauma as a result of a disaster.
Victims of disasters and responders can access this service by contacting the PAA office. The office will record the callers information and provide it to a psychologist on the PAA DRN list. Clients should expect to hear from a psychologist within 2 business days. PAA will not share any client information.
If you are a registered psychologist (provisional included) and PAA member and would like to volunteer on the DRN: complete the application form (download here) and submit to [email protected]. The PAA DRN provides psychological/mental health services primarily during the recovery phase of the disaster, and psychologists will not generally be called upon to attend at the site of the disaster.
Disclaimer: The Psychologists’ Association of Alberta assumes no liability for any of the psychological services provided, nor does the PAA warrant or guarantee the availability of any particular psychological services, or their quality. Participants are required to carry their own liability insurance.
