Ways To Help | American Red Cross | Support the Red Cross


The American Red Cross has been helping with disaster relief, first aid training, supporting American Military, and holding blood drives since 1881 even before they received a national charter in 1900. For a full history check out this link: http://www.redcross.org/about-us/history

More importantly I find that for Mental Health Care Workers especially counselors it is important to take time to consider whether you would like to become a Disaster Mental Health Worker. These are psychologists, social workers, counselors, and therapists that are trained in disaster counseling skills and travel to disasters to help victims. For a detailed description check out the full information by going to: http://www.redcross.org/tn/knoxville/disaster-services/dat/mental-health

If you are interested in how you can become a Disaster Mental Health Worker as a counselor you can check out this page on the American Counseling Association’s webpage: http://www.counseling.org/knowledge-center/trauma-disaster
