Secondary stressors and extreme events and disasters: A systematic review of primary research from 2010-2011

Extreme events and disasters cause distress and are associated with some people developing mental disorders. This literature recognises the distress which primary stressors cause and their association with mental disorders. Secondary stressors such as a lack of financial assistance, the gruelling process of submitting an insurance claim, and continued lack of infrastructure can manifest their effects shortly after a disaster and persist for extended periods of time.
