Show Me Hope Flood Response
The Show Me Hope Crisis Counseling Program (CCP) grant will fund psychological services to help build hope and resiliency in Missouri's survivors. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) awarded the CCP to DMH to continue outreach services through six participating Community Mental Health Centers (CMHCs): BJC, Comtrea, Compass Health, Family Counseling Center, Ozark Center and Ozarks Medical Center. Individuals and families impacted by the flooding who live in the following counties will have access to services: Butler, Carter, Douglas, Dunklin, Franklin, Gasconade, Howell, Jasper, Jefferson, Maries, McDonald, Newton, Oregon, Osage, Ozark, Pemiscot, Phelps, Pulaski, Reynolds, Ripley, Shannon, St. Louis, and Texas.
The CCP is a short-term disaster grant funded by FEMA and administered through the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
