Would you like to help those suffering as the result of flooding in Louisiana?

The American Red Cross is currently deploying volunteers to support the disaster response efforts in Louisiana.  Approximately 10,000 people are in shelters, 24,000 households have been affected, and at least seven people have died as a result of this disaster.  Disaster Mental Health (DMH) workers are needed to support Louisiana residents and responders.  

Deployment details and the application can be found here

APA staff for the Disaster Relief Network program are tracking psychologists responding to Louisiana-- who volunteer in any capacity – whether it be deployment to Louisiana or some other type of support.

 If you do get involved in this effort, please let the CPA office know by emailing or calling (303) 692-9303. We’d like to recognize your work in our CPA communications and, as noted above, APA would like to keep track of psychologists responding to this emergency as well.

Since her election to the legislature in 2009, Senator Newell has been dubbed “The Children’s Champion” at the Capitol for her deep dive into child protection, early childhood learning and K-12 education, and children’s health care and mental health. She is the founder and co-chair of the Children’s Caucus and co-chair of the Behavioral Health Caucus where complex child and family policy issues are brought to the awareness of her fellow legislators.
