  4. 4. National Health Security StrategyNational Health Security Strategy • The purpose of the National Health Security Strategy (NHSS) is to refocus the patchwork of disparate public health and medical preparedness, response, and recovery strategies in order to ensure that the nation is prepared for, protected from, and resilient in the face of health threats or incidents with potentially negative health consequences. This refocusing will strengthen the community, integrate response and recovery systems, generate a framework for accountability and continuous quality improvement, and create seamless coordination between all levels of the medical system. The resulting NHSS will provide a common vision for how the nation will achieve national health security.

  8. 8. When something goes wrong, do you tend to bounce back or fall apart? When you have resilience, you harness inner strengths and rebound more quickly from a setback or challenge, whether it's a job loss, an illness, a disaster or the death of a loved one. In contrast, if you lack resilience, you tend to dwell on problems, feel victimized, become overwhelmed and turn to unhealthy coping mechanisms. You may even be more inclined to develop mental health problems.
  9. 9. Because disaster disrupts so many aspects of daily life, many problems for disaster survivors are immediate and practical in nature. People may need help locating missing loved ones; finding temporary housing, clothing, and food; obtaining transportation; applying for financial assistance, unemployment insurance, building permits, income tax assistance; getting medical care, replacement of eyeglasses or medications; obtaining help with demolition, digging out and clean-up.
