NY Project Hope- Emotional Support in Response to COVID-19
NY Project Hope is a FEMA-funded program that is providing emotional support in response to COVID-19. This includes an Emotional Support Helpline that was initiated at the beginning of the pandemic. I’m writing to ask if Monroe-Orleans Counties and BOCES would help us tell more folks about the free, confidential 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, online support groups, and a supportive social media presence. We welcome you to take a look and follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Our services are always confidential, free, and anonymous.
Attached you will find tools and resources that we hope you will copy, paste, and post to tell folks about NY Project Hope services. We can also provide virtual public education sessions and printed materials (including posters) to share additional information about this program. Click here to request materials or a presentation.
