Online Help for Tough Economic Times
You can’t see stress, but you certainly can feel it. Whether it’s a family member’s job loss, foreclosure, another stock market drop, a glance at your 401(k) balance, or a host of other concerns, are you feeling worn out and overwhelmed? Many of us are.
To help, a first-of-its-kind, online guide now provides crucial information and resource referrals for people dealing with emotional or other health problems associated with economic hard times.
The “Getting Through Tough Economic Times” guide—www.samhsa.gov/economy—provides practical advice on identifying health concerns, developing coping skills, and finding help.
For example, the guide provides important information on identifying the warning signs of depression, suicidal thinking, and other serious mental illnesses.
Developed by SAMHSA in collaboration with other Government agencies and the Suicide Prevention Resource Center, the guide gives you the primary tools you need to protect your health and your family’s well-being.
