Disaster Mental Health
back to top

Disaster Mental Health (DMH)

The Disaster Mental Health team, formerly known as the Traumatic Stress Response Team or the Critical Incident Stress Management team, is a multidisciplinary group of representatives from the Mental health, the Airman and Family Readiness Center and the Base Chapel that helps prepare people for what they may face before dealing with a traumatic event, such as the aftermath of an airplane crash, cleanup of a natural disaster site, death of a service member, death of a family member or coping with things they may have witnessed.  The DMH team also provides Pre-Exposure Preparation training to enhance resilience in individuals and groups who are or may be exposed to an all-hazards incident.

After a traumatic experience, a number of physical and/or mental changes may occur; for example, a person's sleep, thoughts, social interactions and concentration may be interrupted by intrusive thoughts of the trauma or event experienced.  These changes are normal reactions to abnormal events.  Individuals exposed to traumatic events are given information about what they are experiencing to assist with validating what they may be feeling.  If they continue to have difficulties, they can be referred to the appropriate helping agency.

Part of the DMH team's role is to educate individuals about these potential reactions to trauma, perform psychological first aid, and guide those impacted by an event to return to pre-event functioning; in other words, we foster resilience.

The DMH team advises commanders and counsels Airmen after a traumatic event happens.  The commanders are informed about the services and ways the DMH team is able to help those involved cope with what has occurred.  It can range from a lack of feeling, to shock, anger, or sorrow.  The DMH team provides education on the human nervous system (fight or flight response), stress management, and unit as well as personal resilience.

BOUNCE is about resiliency.
Targeted Resiliency is about YOU.

Mental Health Resiliency
Building 340

We realize that in today's Air Force we are doing more mission with less manpower and resources.  It is important that we provide on target Mental Health services, giving the squadrons the exact support they need to ensure their personnel's well being, ensuring the success of the mission.

Our staff recognizes that building resiliency with our fellow airmen and their families takes a cross-functional multi-base agency team effort.  We will meet this challenge with resiliency-based interventions tailored to meet both the individual and squadron's needs.  We believe that resiliency is not a static target but a moving target, one that changes day to day.

Our staff will also offer personalized consultation based resiliency interventions that empower you as a consumer to be in charge of your own resiliency.
