Lifelines Counseling Services works to facilitate positive changes in individuals, families and communities in Mobile and southwestern Alabama by providing comprehensive education, referral and counseling services for social, emergency and financial problems. The project team plans to use this award to provide disaster-related trauma and mental health training for community members, mental health professionals, and social service providers; to support a train-the-trainer model to sustain this network over time; and to partner with the University of South Alabama to develop mental health trauma training courses in existing undergraduate and graduate programs. Through this project, Lifelines Counseling Services will work to increase community resilience and reduce the stigma associated with seeking mental health services in southwestern Alabama.
