COVID-19 Crisis Counseling

The Texans Recovering Together COVID-19 Virtual Counseling Program offers free, short-term crisis counseling by phone or televideo for individuals, families, and groups living in Brown, Eastland, Coleman, Comanche, San Saba, Mills, and McCulloch Counties. We operate Monday – Friday from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm and will respond to requests for counseling within one hour if received before 5 pm on a business day.  Counseling may include resource navigation, grief support, coping skill development, psychoeducation, problem-solving, linkage to available support groups, and more.

The Crisis Counseling Program is made possible through FEMA and Texas Health and Human Services.
