Disaster Community Support Network of Philadelphia Manual

This manual was developed by Mark S. Salzer, Ph.D., now director of the Temple University Collaborative on Community Inclusion. "The Disaster community Support Network of Philadephia (DCSN) has been established by the Mental Health Association of Southeastern Pennsylvania (MHASP) to create settings in which self-help and mutual aid can occur in response to a traumatic community-wide event. The mission of the DCSN is to establish the groundwork for community meetings to take place in the event of national, state, or local events that impact, either directly or indirectly, Philadelphians and their communities. However, the lessons are broadly applicable to other communities.
