In response to the 2015 earthquake in Nepal, our teams of volunteers have focused on providing mental health support and education. Teams of mental health professionals have traveled to remote villages to work with children and adults, helping them to recover and regain a sense of safety and normalcy. Headwaters team members have also provided training for healthcare professionals and emergency responders on psychological first aid and compassion fatigue. In addition, Headwaters wrote and illustrated a children’s book titled “Nepal Quake” that explains what an earthquake is and how it can affect children, family, and community. The book has been distributed to schools and orphanages throughout the region.
