There is a natural recovery period for individuals who experience psychological distress during and following disasters. Most people are restored to their previous level of psychological and social functioning within weeks or a few months of the event. The prevalence of disaster-associated mental health disorders (typically Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Major Depression) varies from one disaster to another, however research suggests around 33% of those people exposed to significant disaster-related trauma could be expected to need mental health care.
