dc.description.abstractThis study reports data on a disaster mental health training program to enhance the capacity of lay people from disaster-affected communities, to provide assistance to others following a bushfire disaster. Local facilitators conducted training sessions which were actively promoted within communities. Participants were asked to complete an anonymous pre- and post-training survey to obtain data on the impact and quality of the training program. Responses from 462 (80%) of 577 people who attended 39 sessions showed substantial and significant increases in key competencies including confidence in their abilities to detect difficulties coping in others and to provide assistance. The quality of the program and materials were rated highly. The findings of the evaluation provide support for the program as a beneficial, acceptable and feasible community-level intervention following disaster.
