NY Project Hope (NYPH) is a NYS Office of Mental Health program, funded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and administered by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
NYPH helps New Yorkers manage and cope with changes brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. It offers an emotional support helpline, access to crisis counselors, educational materials, and trusted referrals.
CPI worked closely with OMH to develop a variety of resources and training materials for the public and NYPH crisis counselors. Working with subject matter experts, course developers, animators and videographers, CPI coordinated the development of over two dozen videos and modules.
We’re pleased to announce that one of these training modules - focusing on PTSD and Trauma - has won a Bronze Telly Award in Craft-Videography/Cinematography. The Telly Awards honor excellence in video and television across all screens. This module uses interactivity, text, animations and videos to teach crisis counselors to use core skills - listen, validate, share and plan - to help people coping with PTSD and trauma.
