Contribute to the APA Foundation's Disaster Relief Fund

We know that when disaster strikes, having immediate food, care, and supplies can lessen the trauma. As a mental health organization, we understand that this basic support can reduce some of the emotional trauma each individual, family, and community experiences. That's why the APA Foundation initiated a Disaster Relief Fund - providing professional, financial, and strategic support to nonprofit organizations throughout the many phases of recovery in federally designated disaster areas.
