Running head: OUTLINE 1 Supporting Mental Illness and Intellectual Disabilities in Disasters Ahmad Alsagoor DMM 648 Dr. Len Clark OUTLINE 2 Supporting Mental Illness and Intellectual Disabilities in Disasters Outline Abstract • The purpose of this discussion is to explore the approaches the way in which persons with mental illness and intellectual disabilities can be supported adequately in case of disasters. • It will evaluate the challenges that this special group faces in disaster situations and offers workable solutions that can be inculcated in the disaster preparedness plan. Introduction • Disasters usually have a non-discriminatory effect including physical injury and trauma on everyone (Baryshnikova & Pham, 2019). • The resources constraints occasioned by disasters often cause people with mental illness and intellectual disabilities to be left out because they are unable to advocate or fight for themselves (Phillips & Stough, 2016). • In order to respond adequately to the special needs of the mentally ill during disasters, it is necessary to factor in their unique needs in the disaster preparedness plan. • Thesis statement: Support for persons with mental illness and intellectual disabilities requires evaluation of their needs and reactions in disaster situations and the formulation of holistic interventions that address those needs before, during, and after disasters. Needs and Challenges of persons with mental illness and intellectual disabilities in disasters • Withdrawal from medication may undermine their mental stability and poses a significant threat to their health and wellbeing. OUTLINE • 3 Inability to conduct effective mobilization of evacuation or identify suitable evacuation site. • Individuals with mental illness and intellectual disabilities may experience disorientation due to stressors such as change of location, noise, and being in huge crowds (Stough, 2015). • Limited ability to communicate makes it challenging for the mentally ill to express their needs in a manner that could be perceived by everyone else. • The stress reaction of the mentally ill and those with intellectual disabilities may be considered disruptive or even threatening to themselves and those around them (Stough, 2015). Developing Support Structures for the mentally ill and intellectually disabled in case of disasters • Strengthening family and community support to protect and enhance the wellbeing of persons with mental illness and intellectual disabilities (Sippel et al., 2015). • Development of a socially, culturally, and community-centered disaster response measures that will cater to the needs of the mentally ill persons in a safe and dignified manner. • Provide access to basic social and mental health support to individuals with moderate or severe mental health challenges following a disaster (Sippel et al., 2015). • Developing a multi-level mental health support system to cater for mental health needs before, during, and after disasters. a) The first level addresses the primary needs of mentally ill persons such as basic needs and security. OUTLINE 4 b) The second level: of sensitizes and mobilizes the community to embrace individuals with mental illness and intellectual disabilities. c) The third level equips communities and families with the skills to provide the necessary psychosocial support. d) The fourth level provides specialized mental health care to address severe mental health conditions. Conclusion • The cognitive limitations of individuals with mental illness and intellectual disability make them have unique needs and reactions during disasters. • Based on the identified needs and reactions of this special need group, it is possible to develop practical solutions that will support their welfare in case of disaster. • Sensitization and training of communities on how to support persons with mental illness and intellectual disabilities is a more effective way of supporting them during disasters when resource constrain is dire.

The article explores the issue of natural disasters by assessing the effect it has on the
mental health of homeowners. Australia is one of the countries that experience a
significant share of natural disasters that have left varying level of destruction on
property. Using data from Australia, the study sought to identify the relationship in the
mental health effect on homeowners and non-homeowners. The findings showed that for
individuals that do not own a home, the average effect was zero. However, using the
quantile approach, the study showed that natural disasters had a strong negative effect on
the non-homeowners in the lowest two quantiles. This shows that rather than focusing on
the economically poorest, recovery efforts and policies on mental health would be more
effective if they were aimed at both the homeowners and the poorest non-homeowners.
