This article describes the development and implementation of an empirically-based disaster mental health training program (P-FLASH) developed by Washington University Department of Psychiatry researchers in response to a request from the September 11 Fund. While this training program and its derivatives not only provided training for thousands of health professionals assisting survivors of the 9/11 attacks in the New York City area, it also provided more general disaster mental health training to prepare professionals nationally.
