Trauma-Informed Training Opportunity

There is HOPE and HELP!

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Department of Mental Health was awarded a Crisis Counseling Program (CCP) grant by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The Show Me Hope CCP funding will provide behavioral health services to Missourians who are emotionally troubled by the pandemic. Tri-County Mental Health Services will be delivering stress management resources and resource referrals to citizens feeling the stress and emotional strain caused by COVID-19. The Show Me Hope team will assist Missourians in building hope and resiliency for the future.

Get Smart About Drugs, a DEA resource for parents, educators, and caregivers, has developed a quiz to test how well you know drug slang! Words like “bliss”, “pebbles”, and “groceries” probably sound innocent enough. But some try to hide their drug use through code words of slang. Learn about popular drug slang terms while testing your knowledge by taking this quiz.

Prevention Work Continues!

Over the past few weeks, our coalition leadership has been partnering with others in the region to develop and promote 9 Ways to Root Your Family in Resilience During the Pandemic. These new messages encourage adults to practice and model self-care and teach kids that we shouldn’t use alcohol and other drugs to cope. The Roots of Resilience Facebook page has been hosting a few giveaways to encourage participation which has been a hit!! In the coming weeks, we will also be hosting local giveaways on our page, so be sure to follow along with us here! Please help us spread this information by liking, sharing and commenting on this content. You just might win a fun local prize!
