ABSTRACT One year after the Great East Japan Earthquake, the Office of Policy for Suicide Prevention of the Cabinet Office published and distributed three stages of pamphlets under the supervision of the National Center of Neurology and Psychiatry, promoting understanding about mental healthcare for those affected by natural disasters. Pamphlets are meant for universal usage and have commonly been used not only in the area affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake but also where earthquakes have occurred in other regions since the Great East Japan Earthquake and in areas affected by typhoon and flood damage. We hope three kinds of pamphlets can be useful for not only in Japan but also outside Japan.
