Crisis Counseling Assistance and Training Program Guidance   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the Introduction: "The Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS), within the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), works with FEMA through an interagency agreement to provide technical assistance, consultation, grant administration, program oversight, and training for state mental health authorities, U.S. territories, and designated tribal authorities. The mission of the CCP [Crisis Counseling Assistance and Training Program] is to assist individuals and communities in recovering from the effects of natural and human-caused disasters through the provision of community-based outreach and psychoeducational services. The CCP supports short-term interventions that involve assisting disaster survivors in understanding their current situation and reactions, mitigating stress, developing coping strategies, accessing sources of emotional support, and encouraging linkages with other individuals and agencies that help survivors in their recovery process. The information presented in the program guidance is organized into seven sections: Program Overview, CCP Model, Program Management and Implementation, Pre-award Requirements, Post-award Requirements, Budget and Fiscal Management, and the Appendix Section."
