Utah Strong Recovery Project
During these difficult times with COVID-19, many people are experiencing feelings of anxiety, depression, isolation, and loneliness. The Utah Strong Counseling Program has been developed to assist people in finding ways to cope with stress caused by Coronavirus (COVID-19). Utah Strong provides free crisis counseling services through virtual outreach, public education, emotional support, education information, and referral services and will be working toward community outreach.
There are no medical or financial screening methods to qualify to receive services. Utah Strong staff are available to individuals, families, community groups, service organizations, those experiencing homelessness, tribes, and cultural minorities. The program is operated by the Division of Substance Abuse and Mental Health in the Department of Human Services and is funded through a grant by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
There is a helpline operated daily from 7:00 a.m. to 7 p.m. These services and resources are all provided free of charge. We encourage increased awareness of the needs of all teachers, students, and families during this time of re-entering schools and want you to know Utah Strong is a free resource to help as needed. Thank you for all you do for the safety and education of the students in this great State of Utah.
