Emergency Mental Health and Traumatic Stress

Program Type: Resources - Information or materials that might help develop a program/project in a community but can not be defined as a Best Practice, Promising Practice, or Local Effort.

The purpose of this program guidance is to acquaint the reader with the legislative basis for and operational mechanisms of the Crisis Counseling Assistance and Training Program (CCP) and its component functions. This guidance is a reference tool for public sector State and local mental health agencies and other Federal personnel unfamiliar with the CCP. Only a State or Federally-recognized Indian Tribe may apply for a crisis counseling grant. The State determines the need for crisis counseling services by compiling disaster data and conducting a mental health needs assessment of the Presidentially-declared area.
