The U.S. Repatriation Program was established in 1935 under Section 1113 of the Social Security Act to provide temporary assistance to private U.S. citizens and their dependents identified by the Department of State (DOS) as having returned from a foreign country to the United States because of destitution, illness, war, threat of war, or a similar crisis, and are without available resources.

In addition to damaging infrastructure, earthquakes can damage your sense of personal safety. Following an earthquake, it is common for individuals and families in and around the affected areas to experience distress and anxiety about their personal safety as well as the safety of their family, friends, and neighbors. Earthquakes can leave children and teens feeling frightened, confused, and insecure. Addressing the behavioral health impacts of an earthquake is a key component of an individual’s and family’s recovery.

The "Supporting Behavioral Health Needs following an Earthquake" document provides general guidance for identifying behavioral health impacts to individuals after an earthquake with an emphasis on supporting the behavioral health needs of children and youth.  The document also lists various behavioral health resources for readers.
