Over the last few years we have seen bushfires, floods, and persistent storms that have affected entire communities. The immediate effect is often shock and longer term, many experience anxiety and fear around disasters happening again.

This Expert Insights explores the research findings on natural disasters and the short and longer-term impact on wellbeing. Moreover, we discuss best practice for supporting communities and individuals recovering from natural disasters, and the resources for mental health practitioners in these communities.
