TEXAS DISASTER RESOURCES

In the aftermath of the devastating storms and flooding that hit our state in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, state agencies have deployed resources to the affected areas, health plans have made policy changes, millions of dollars have been raised through donations, and thousands of Texas physicians have put in extra time and effort to address the public health concerns.

The Federation of Texas Psychiatry will continue to update this page regularly to assist in providing resources to you, your practice, or others in need in securing services and disaster relief, in addition to providing coping and care services for your patients. Recently added, Texas Medical Association has financial assistance available to rebuild practices damaged by Harvey, in addition to the latest information for physicians affected by the disaster. Those links can be accessed by clicking the following link: HURRICANE DISASTER RESOURCES.
