Disaster Mental Health & Human Services

The Kent County Disaster Mental Health and Human Services Committee is a group of dedicated individuals from agencies and organizations serving our citizens most likely to be vulnerable in a community emergency. We meet regularly to plan and share information on how we can help prepare our residents who are elderly, children, deaf, hard of hearing, blind, visually impaired, low-English proficient, and with cognitive or mobility disabilities.
