Purpose of Collection                         

 As of this writing, there are no psychosocial stress assessment tool designed for Filipino first responders. It is the vision of this proposed android app that whenever a first responder volunteers for deployment, a series of interactive messages will be sent to his/her android phone before, during, and after deployment. His/her responses will be automatically analyzed to assess real time stress levels, triggering appropriate interventions, such as reminder to sleep, eat properly, stop his/her participation for a few days or indefinitely. Methodology: In the first 12 months, the stress assessment tool, android app and training modules will be designed, created, and pretested. This system will be deployed to disaster response organizations. All generated data in the next 12 months will be used to assess if the stress levels of first responders maybe managed with the Android app, as compared to pre-deployment.
