THE NEVADA RESILIENCE PROJECT

We are all trying to balance different challenges right now. The Nevada Resilience Project supports families and individuals experiencing struggles and challenges due to COVID – 19. Our Resilience Ambassadors provide education, information, counseling, and resource navigation while promoting healthy coping, empowerment, and resilience. It’s normal to be experiencing difficulty with adapting to the new challenges of managing work, school, family, or home due to COVID-19, feeling isolated or anxious, or worried about meeting basic needs like having enough food or access to healthcare. In this challenging time, you are not alone. Our Resilience Ambassadors can provide support and connection to resources over the phone, through text and video-chat, or face to face. We offer bi-lingual access to services; assistance navigating to needed resources in your community; help to reduce stress, build coping skills, and develop a resilience plan.

The NRP was established through a Crisis Counseling Assistance and Training Grant from the Substance Use and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) in cooperation with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The Nevada Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Public and Behavioral Health received award in June, and the program is slated through May 2021.
