Journal Article


Abstract


  • To the Editor

    In recent years, Australia and New Zealand have witnessed an increased prevalence in highly destructive natural disasters. These events result in significant loss of life and reduced quality of life in their aftermath. Since the 2011 Brisbane floods, affected residents have experienced increased levels of common psychiatric disorders, sleeping difficulties, and Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) (Turner et al., 2012). These effects are substantial and can be long-lasting (Raphael and Meldrum, 1993).
