"Disaster Community Support Network of Philadelphia, a Program of the Mental Health Association of Southeastern Pennsylvania" was developed by Mark S. Salzer, Ph.D., now executive director of the Temple University Collaborative on Community Inclusion. The Disaster Community Support Network of Philadelphia (DCSN) was 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 of the DCSN are broadly applicable to communities around the country. To download the free manual, click on Enclosure, below.
