Webinar Series on the 2019 Flood

Natural disasters affect everyone in their path regardless of status, income, ability to recover or the ability to deal with the chaos left behind. 

This webinar series (originally offered live) consists of seven sessions presented by Behavioral health professionals from the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC), Nebraska Medicine and the Behavioral Health Education Center of Nebraska (BHECN). Each session presents helpful information and resources on how to deal with the mental health effects in the aftermath of a natural disaster. The live portion has ended and the sessions were recorded. Please see the list below to click and watch the recorded sessions.
