"The U. S. Virgin Islands was rewarded with a Community Resiliency Program (CRP) grant which is a short-term disaster relief grant for states, U.S territories, and federally recognized tribes. In the case of the USVI, because we are going through the COVID-19 pandemic, Island Therapy was granted the funding to begin this program. The funding supports community-based outreach, counseling, and other mental health services to survivors of natural and human-caused disasters. CRP counselors do virtual counseling services as well as presentations and public education. The counselors are trained to focus on stress management, problem solving, relaxation and other positive techniques."
