COVID CRISIS COUNSELING PROGRAM
KU MAKANI - By Hawai'i Cares
The mission of our COVID Crisis Counseling Program services is to assist both adults and children within our community with recovering from the impacts of COVID-19. Crisis counseling services typically involve community-based outreach services and pyscho-education services. However, due the unique nature of providing Crisis Counseling for consumers that have been impacted by COVID-19, our state-wide services will be rendered using a blend of maintaining a warm line, education via media marketing, virtual online meetings via zoom/telehealth modalities for groups and individual crisis counseling sessions.
"When you touch one thing with deep awareness, you touch everything."
- Lao Tzu
Our Crisis counseling services are focused on helping individuals that have been affected by COVID-19 with the recovery process through the use of supportive counseling and providing resources, referrals, linkages throughout Hawai'i. We hope that our program will help you feel heard, supported and provide you with the opportunity to heal.
The goal of Ku Makani will be to help survivors with learning effective coping techniques, stress management, mitigating the negative impacts, and helping consumers to rebuild their lives. Counselors will help them to process their personal reactions, through active listening, assessments of needs, psychoeducation, referral, and linkages. We hope that our program will give you an opportunity to learn more ways to cope and manage your feelings and to learn about community services that can best support your needs.
