Crisis Counseling Program

The State of Missouri has a Crisis Counseling Program (CCP) known as ‘Show-Me Hope’ that is funded by FEMA and SAMSHA in response to federally declared disasters. The CCP helps people recover and rebuild their lives after a disaster. It supports short-term interventions that involve the following counseling goals:

  • Helping disaster survivors understand their current situation and reactions.
  • Reducing stress and providing emotional support.
  • Assisting survivors in reviewing their disaster recovery options.
  • Promoting the use or development of coping strategies.
  • Connecting survivors with other people and agencies who can help them in their recovery process.

Services include:

  • Individual and group crisis counseling.
  • Basic supportive or educational contact.
  • Community networking and support.
  • Assessments, referrals, and resources.
  • Development and distribution of educational materials.
  • Media and public service announcements.

As the community builds resilience, CCP services phase down and transition to the existing community resources.
