Crisis Counseling Assistance & Training Program

Federal Emergency Management Agency. (2015). Crisis Counseling Assistance & Training Program.

The mission of this program is to help individuals and communities recover from the behavioral health effects of natural and human-caused disasters by providing community-based outreach and psycho-educational services. Supplemental funding for crisis counseling is available to State Mental Health Authorities through two grant mechanisms: the Immediate Services Program (ISP; funds for up to 60 days of services immediately following a disaster declaration); and the Regular Services Program (RSP; funds for up to nine months following a disaster declaration). FEMA monitors ISP, and SAMHSA provides technical assistance. SAMHSA monitors all RSP programs.
