King, M., Schreiber, M., Formanski, S., et al. (2013). A Brief Report of Surveillance of Traumatic Experiences and Exposures After the Earthquake-Tsunami in American Samoa, 2009. (Free registration required.) Emergency Medicine Journal. 26(12):899-902. 7(3):327-31.
The authors conducted a cross-sectional, comparative review of mental health triage data from survivors of the September 2009 earthquake-tsunami in American Samoa. More than 90% of survivors referred for mental health services reported that they "felt extreme panic/fear" "felt direct threat to life." The authors commend the utility of the combination of evidence-based mental health triage and community assessment.
