Life can throw us curve balls. It can be challenging at times to navigate it all – mentally, physically and socially… hard. In addition, it can be hard to stay positive. We understand, and we hope this resource helps you find the support you need to help you get through any tough times you may be experiencing. Call 9-1-1 for immediate help during any situation that could potentially result in danger to your own or someone else's life.
 

Feeling overwhelmed?

When you’re looking for help, it can be overwhelming. If you aren’t sure where to start, call, text or chat 211. 211 provides easy access to many different community programs and resources.
  • For quick assistance dial 211 or text your zip code to 898211. A support personnel will help you find services that are available in your area.
  • Otherwise, visit the 211 website and enter your zip code to find out what is available in your area.
 

Feeling hopeless?

If you’re struggling, it’s important to know, you are not alone. More importantly, if you’re feeling exhausted or hopeless, there are people who can and want to help so you. If you’re having thoughts of suicide, seek professional help right away.  

Feeling sad, anxious or mad? Not sure what you’re feeling?

We all feel and express things differently. Sometimes, we don’t know what we are feeling. Other times, we may not even realize we are struggling. Whether it be a loss of a loved one, stressful work or family situations, or other physical or mental challenges, there are healthy ways to express what you’re feeling.
  • The first step is to acknowledge what you’re going through has been hard. For instance, if you lost someone or you’re missing out on things, acknowledge that these things are gone, and understand you are grieving those losses.
  • Second, acknowledge that grief can look like crying, but it can also look like anger, anxiety, sleeplessness, hopefulness, changes in appetite moodiness and irritability. We need to allow ourselves to feel these emotions and grieve.
  • Once you allow yourself to feel what you are feeling, then find healthy ways to express those feelings.
