NY Project Hope is a FEMA funded program that is providing crisis counseling and public education in response to COVID-19. This includes an Emotional Support Helpline that was initiated by the Governor’s office at the beginning of the pandemic. I’m writing to ask if the New York State School Social Workers’ Association would help us tell more people about the free, confidential crisis counseling services offered through this statewide program of the New York State Office of Mental Health.
How does NY Project Hope help?
Our Emotional Support Helpline is staffed by trained crisis counselors who help callers talk through their emotions and find resources to help them with the challenges of COVID. NY Project Hope also has a website filled with resources that folks can access anytime at www.nyprojecthope.org, as well as a supportive social media presence. We’re continuing to add new website content related to youth, parents, and families as well. We welcome you to take a look and follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Our services are always confidential, free, and anonymous.
