Natural disasters can have long-term behavioral health effects. These effects can include an increase in substance misuse, stress, anxiety, depression, and other mental health symptoms. The addition of stress related to the 2019 floods is likely to exasperate or worsen existing behavioral health needs.  

The North Dakota Department of Human Services’ Behavioral Health Division (BHD) was awarded a federal grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA) to implement the Disaster Response State Grant Program.
