Under the award, victims, providers, and other stakeholders will inform the MV Center about challenges, lessons learned, and best practices. Education, training, and resources, such as building capacity and resilience will be further developed, implemented, and provided to victims, criminal justice, victim service, and mental health professionals along with Community Based Learning Collaboratives. Technology will be leveraged to deploy the Transcend mobile self-help application for all crime victims, criminal justice and victim service providers, law enforcement, and others. Other technology initiatives include maintaining the website; hosting online training curricula; rolling out the In-Incident Coordination Mobile Application with real-time messaging and the ability to connect law enforcement and those coordinating victim services; and implementing a Virtual Resiliency Center to provide vital services to rural, impaired, and older victims without access to services. MUSC will also support communities impacted by mass violence incidents providing consultation and appropriate mental health training or services, deploying the AEAP application template, and developing protocols for training, supervising, and delivering telehealth counseling for mass violence victims.
