Harnessing Community Capacity in Disaster Recovery:  a Lay Mental Health Intervention in Postearthquake Haiti
Abstract: The devastating Haiti earthquake of 2010 resulted in significant challenges to meeting the mental health needs of affected populations.  This study examines a community-level, lay mental health intervention developed following the earthquake. Findings suggest this intervention may be a model for culturally informed disaster mental health response in LMICs.
