Grant to help train post-flood counselors
Last Updated: 16:10 October 21, 2013
A coordinator and six workers at the Boulder-based nonprofit group will be trained to provide mental health support and resources to flood victims, using money from the grant, according to a press statement.
The workers plan to meet people in the community and help them on the path to healing, Janine D'Anniballe, director of emergency and community services at Mental Health Partners, said in the press statement.
Mental Health Partners workers at the group's main administrative offices at 1333 Iris Ave. in Boulder were hit by flooding themselves. They're working out of a temporary office at 1000 Alpine Ave in Boulder.
Mental Health Partners formed in 1962. The nonprofit has approximately 400 employees working from several locations in Boulder and Broomfield counties.
