Enhancing Community Resilience in the Aftermath of Disaster: Results from a Randomized Controlled Trial with Disaster-prone Communities in Port-au-Prince, Haiti
Abstract: We report results from a randomized controlled trial (N = 480) focused on determining whether  a culturally-adapted community-based disaster mental health intervention is efficacious for flood-prone  communities in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Findings indicate that the intervention resulted in increased well-being  and disaster preparedness compared to a waitlist control group.
