Disaster Distress Helpline

SAMHSA’s Disaster Distress Helpline provides 24/7, 365-day-a-year crisis counseling and support to people experiencing emotional distress related to natural or human-caused disasters.

The Disaster Distress Helpline, 1-800-985-5990, is a 24/7, 365-day-a-year, national hotline dedicated to providing immediate crisis counseling for people who are experiencing emotional distress related to any natural or human-caused disaster. This toll-free, multilingual, and confidential crisis support service is available to all residents in the United States and its territories. Stress, anxiety, and other depression-like symptoms are common reactions after a disaster. Call 1-800-985-5990 or text TalkWithUs to 66746 to connect with a trained crisis counselor.

Counseling Services

The Disaster Distress Helpline puts people in need of counseling on the path to recovery. Our staff members provide counseling and support before, during, and after disasters and refer people to local disaster-related resources for follow-up care and support. Since its launch in February 2012, the Disaster Distress Helpline has provided counseling and support in response to disasters such as Hurricane Sandy, the Boston Marathon bombing, and the Ebola outbreak.

The Disaster Distress Helpline is staffed by trained counselors from a network of crisis call centers located across the United States. These counselors provide:

  • Crisis counseling for people in emotional distress related to any natural or human-caused disaster
  • Information on how to recognize distress and its effects on individuals and families
  • Tips for healthy coping
  • Referrals to local crisis call centers for additional follow-up care and support

When you call or text, crisis counselors will listen to what’s on your mind with patience and without judgment. There is no need to give any identifying information when you contact the Disaster Distress Helpline. The counselor may ask you for some basic information at the end of the call, but these questions are optional and are intended to help SAMHSA keep track of the types of calls it receives.

Who Should Contact the Disaster Distress Helpline?

This crisis support service is for anyone experiencing emotional distress related to disasters such as:

The Disaster Distress Helpline also answers calls and texts related to infectious disease outbreaks, such as the Ebola outbreak, incidents of community unrest, and other traumatic events.

The impact of crises may affect people in different ways. Learn how to recognize the warning signs and risk factors for emotional distress related to natural and human-caused disasters.

The Disaster Distress Helpline is open to everyone. This includes survivors of disasters; loved ones of victims; first responders; rescue, recovery, and relief workers; clergy; and parents and caregivers. You may call for yourself or on behalf of someone else.

Call or Text

From the United States and its territories, call 1-800-985-5990 to connect with a trained crisis counselor, 24/7. Spanish-speakers can call the hotline and press “2” for 24/7 bilingual support.

Callers to the hotline can also connect with counselors in over 100 other languages via 3rd-party interpretation services; to connect with a counselor in your primary language, simply indicate your preferred language to the responding counselor and she/he will connect to a live interpreter (interpretation in less commonly-spoken languages may require calling back at an appointed time). Learn more and download information about the Disaster Distress Helpline in 30 of the most commonly-spoken languages in the U.S.

To connect with a live DDH crisis counselor 24/7 via SMS, from the 50 states text “TalkWithUs” for English or “Hablanos” for Spanish to 66746. Spanish-speakers from Puerto Rico can text “Hablanos” to 1-787-339-2663.

Texting is subscription-based and only involves a few steps:

  1. Enroll in the service by texting TalkWithUs or Hablanos exactly as written. It’s important to do this before sending your first text message because otherwise the enrollment may fail, and you will not be able to speak with a counselor, or you may accidentally subscribe to another service.
  2. Look for confirmation that your subscription was successful. You will receive a Success! message if it was.
  3. To unsubscribe, text Stop or Unsubscribe to 66746 (or 1-787-339-2663 from Puerto Rico) at any time. For help, text Help to 66746 (or 1-787-339-2663 from Puerto Rico).

Standard text and data message rates will apply when texting from mobile phones. International text and data rates may apply from within U.S. territories and free association nations. SAMHSA will not sell your phone numbers to other parties.

The Disaster Distress Helpline’s TTY number 1-800-846-8517 is available 24/7 to Deaf and hard of hearing individuals, who can also utilize the texting options or their preferred Relay service (including 7-1-1) to connect with the main DDH hotline 1-800-985-5990, 24/7.

Since 2008, the Alliance of Hope has been working to decrease stigma, increase understanding of the suicide loss experience, and provide direct support to survivors.

  • Every 40 seconds, someones dies by suicide, leaving 6-8 loved ones grieving devastating loss.
  • In the U.S., 45 million people have survived suicide loss.
  • Every day, thousands of people seek support after suicide.

Suicide loss survivors share a singular bond. Although each of our situations is unique, we tend to experience similar feelings, questions, and stages of grief. Support groups provide a good opportunity to meet others who understand and can result in deep friendships.

FeldenKrais Classes Online Every Hour of the Day

Welcome to a new way of thinking about health.

The Feldenkrais Method® is a powerful and revolutionary approach to improving your life that uses gentle, mindful movement to bring new awareness and possibility into every aspect of your life. Developed by Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais, the Feldenkrais Method has helped millions of people worldwide.

The Feldenkrais Method® of somatic education is a practice, a process, and a system for self-improvement. It is a form of “somatic education,” which means it uses movement and real-time awareness of your own body sensations to guide you toward the positive changes you seek.

The Feldenkrais Method is not a treatment, adjustment, or exercise program. Instead, it is based on decades of research in physics, neuroscience, biomechanics, learning theory, and human development to give you the means to help yourself.

There is more information on their site about ATM (Awareness Through Movement) and FI (Functional Integration) as well as Professional Training.

WHAT IF I’M JUST NOT READY TO TRY THERAPY?

That’s OK. The L.A.-based mental health startup Frame hosts digital workshops, led by licensed therapists, “for people who aren’t ready to try therapy,” said the company’s CEO Kendall Bird.

“It’s a way for people around the country — and specifically in Los Angeles — to get a sense of what therapy could be like for them, to have a better understanding of what you can talk about in therapy and also to learn that there are really different styles of therapists,” she said.

For people not ready or wanting to seek counseling with a therapist just yet, but who could use some information on common topics Frame offers FREE anonymous, online recorded workshops led by licensed therapists from the Frame network, designed to leave you with tangible tools for real life. Tune in when and where it works for you, as a supplement to your in-person sessions, or as a convenient way to explore specific topics and learn about what gets talked about in therapy.

Frame workshops:

For now, linking up directly with a therapist or counselor through Frame may only available for California residents, but you can add your name to a waiting list.  If you have insurance, you may want to contact them regarding providers in the network.  If you do not have insurance, you may want to explore community based services and/or faith based services that may offer Free or Sliding Scale services.  Or you may want to explore other self-help options online.

Thousands of GriefShare support groups meet weekly around the world. Visit or join a group at anytime. And attend as many meetings as you like.  GriefShare groups have a 13 week cycle, but you are welcome to begin attending at any session.  You will find encouragement and help whenever you begin. You will be able to continue with GriefShare through the next 13-week cycle and view any videos you have not seen.

Each week your GriefShare group will watch a video seminar featuring top experts on grief and recovery subjects. These videos are produced in an interesting television magazine format featuring expert interviews, real-life case studies, dramatic reenactments, and on-location video.

Support group discussion with focus
After viewing the video, you and the other group members will spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week’s video seminar and what is going on in your lives.

Personal study and reflection
During the week you will have the opportunity to use your workbook for further personal study of the grieving process and to help sort out your emotions through journaling. Your group will spend time discussing questions and comments from the workbook study.

The format will involve educational material, a guided, experiential practice, and time for group discussion.

Excerpt(s):

Our mission at Mindspace is to inspire well-being with the transformative potential of science, wisdom, and human connection.

We believe well-being is a skill that can be learned, and that it can scale from the individual, to families, communities, and organizations of all shapes and sizes. We believe that everyone can benefit from some form of mind training, but that doesn’t mean there’s a one-size-fits-all solution. Well-being at Mindspace is about connecting with people where they are and supporting the development of skills for building a sustainable, meaningful life—at home, at work, and in the world.

OLGA – OnLine Gamers Anonymous – Virtual Online Chats – Weekdays and Weekends @ Online via Chat

On Line Gamers Anonymous (OLGA)

Excerpt(s) from Website:

Our Mission Statement is: “On-Line Gamers Anonymous® is a group of people sharing their experience, strengths and hope to help each other recover from problems resulting from excessive game playing.”

On-Line Gamers Anonymous® was founded by Liz Woolley in May of 2002 after her son, Shawn, committed suicide as a direct result of being addicted to an on-line game. Liz was soon joined by Ron Jaffe (Diggo McDiggity), a recovering gamer. They supported each other as the fellowship grew.

The OLGA® and OLG-Anon Recovery Fellowships and Outreach, are divisions of OLGA®/OLG-Anon (On-Line Gamers Anonymous®) World Services, Inc.. OLGA® and OLG-Anon Fellowships are dedicated to offering support to addicted gamers (OLGA), their families (OLG-Anon) so they can heal and recover from problems resulting from the newest “drug of choice” – excessive video game playing. Outreach is our public service division that assists in providing information to educate about the dangers of excessive game playing. The Outreach division assists in providing an extensive list of professional resources who provide services for those affected by excessive video gaming,video gaming addiction or a video gaming disorder. Outreach also helps raise funds to continue our mission.

We offer support. Our community is open to all who seek support. We are not an activist group, nor do we sponsor such organizations. Our message forums are available to all, regardless of bias or opinion. We are here to share our experience, strength and hope and encourage peer-to-peer support. Family and friends are invited to share their experience, compassion, and wisdom. Every day we accumulate and add to our collection of information related to excessive gaming and the issues it creates. Sharing this with our visitors is a primary goal.

…Our organization is staffed by many people, who at one time or another have considered themselves excessive gamers or have had their lives affected by an excessive gamer.

About Ophelia’s Place

Ophelia’s Place is a prevention-based nonprofit organization dedicated to helping girls ages 10-18 make healthy life choices through empowerment, education and support.

At Ophelia’s Place we believe in girls’ strengths and encourage them to discover and nurture their gifts as they become young women. The goal of our work is to empower young women to make healthy, informed decisions about their many important life choices. By the simplest definition, we are a “community for girls.”  Our vision is that all girls are safe, valued and empowered.

Equity & Inclusion

Ophelia’s Place believes all girls, no matter their backgrounds, should feel valued. Our Equity & Inclusion Committee meets regularly to review Ophelia’s Place policy to ensure we maintain access to our services for all girls.

Vision
We envision a future in which girls of all backgrounds feel at home in Ophelia’s Place, and see themselves reflected throughout our organization. We are committed to ensuring all girls in our community feel safe, valued, and empowered, including those who are marginalized by experiences of oppression.

Mission
The mission of the Equity & Inclusion Committee is to embed equity and inclusion into all levels of the organizational framework of Ophelia’s Place. We work to center equity and inclusion in the culture of Ophelia’s Place. This lens is vital in eliminating health disparities across identity groups in the communities we serve. We pledge to increase our outreach and collaboration with diverse communities in order to improve access and utilization of our services by marginalized youth. Through strategic planning and program development, we can enhance the quality and relevance of our services for diverse communities of youth.

RECOVERY DHARMA ONLINE

We are a group of Recovery Dharma Members who use technology to meet up with each other from around the world. We make an effort to stay in contact with each other between meetings to form Spiritual Friendships.

We get together online for meetings, workshops, and inter-sangha business. Some of us stay around after the closing to hangout in the Virtual Parking Lot for fellowship. For some of us, this is our primary recovery community. For others, it supplements the meetings available to us locally.

Recovery Dharma Online organizes daily meetings accessible via computer, smartphone, or dial-in. Together we meditate, study Buddhist teachings, and support each other on our paths to sobriety and peace.

GAMBLERS ANONYMOUS is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from a gambling problem.

The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop gambling.

There are no dues or fees for Gamblers Anonymous membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. Gamblers Anonymous is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any cause. Our primary purpose is to stop gambling and to help other compulsive gamblers do the same.”

From the Gamblers Anonymous Website:

Types of Meetings

Closed Meeting:
Only those with a gambling problem, or those who think they may have a gambling problem, and have a desire to stop gambling, may attend and participate.

Modified Closed Meeting:
Same as a “Closed Meeting” but the members would vote to include certain groups such as health professionals, guests attending with first time members, and persons with other addictions in need of a meeting

Open Meeting:
Spouses, family, and friends of the gambler are welcome
to attend and observe the meeting.

Need someone to talk to?  Check out Warmline.org

poster

According to the Center for Hope and Recovery, “A warmline is a telephone service (aka a call line) for people who are looking for someone to discuss their daily struggles. Warmlines are staffed with peers who have lived experience of mental health struggles themselves and who are open to sharing their stories of challenging situations, recovery, and perseverance”  The hours, days and geographic reach may vary.  Fortunately, there are many warmlines including quite a number operating in Oregon such as but not limited to: The David Romprey Warmline.

Check out this article “What is a Warmline and What Should I Expect When I Call One?” by Chaya Grossberg: https://www.madinamerica.com/2014/06/warm-line-expect-call-one/

Article regarding Peer Warmlines

Sustaining Recovery through the Night:
Impact of a Peer-Run Warm Line

by Rebecca Spirito Dalgin, Simonne Maline, and Peter Driscoll

https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/21768081/

Excerpt(s):

Objective: This exploratory study describes the impact of a peer-run warm line on the lives of individuals with psychiatric disabilities.

Methods: Phone surveys were completed with 480 warm line callers over four years. Results: Warm line callers reported a reduction in the use of crisis services and a reduction of feelings of isolation.

Conclusions and Implications for Practice: The results indicate that peer-run warm lines can fill an important void in the lives of individuals living with mental [health challenges]. Although warm lines at any time of day are helpful, keeping warm lines running after 5pm and throughout the night provides support services not typically available after office hours and can assist with loneliness, symptom management, and the process of recovery.

Telephone Peer Support – Trans Lifeline Saving Lives – 877-565-8860 – Weekdays and Weekends @ United States and Canada
Jul 14 all-day

logo

Trans Lifeline

Peer Support and Crisis Hotline by and for Trans & Questioning

Hotline open 24 hours per day, 7 days per week* – Weekdays & Weekends

* reportedly it is only guaranteed to be staffed 7am-1pm PST / 10am-4pm EST but may have operators or take messages outside these times

Toll-Free USA:  877-565-8860

Toll-Free Canada:  877-330-6366

Trans Lifeline is a peer support service run by trans people, for trans and questioning callers. Our operators are located all over the U.S. and Canada and are all trans-identified. If you are in crisis or just need someone to talk to, even if it’s just about whether or not you’re trans, please call us. We will do our best to support you and provide you resources.

Our Hotline launched shortly after Trans Day of Remembrance of 2014 in response to the epidemic of suicide in our community. We believe that some of the best support that a trans person in a crisis can have is a fellow member of our community with shared lived experience.

While it started as a service for people in crisis, that is no longer the case. Trans Lifeline still functions as a crisis and suicide prevention hotline. However, it also serves as a space for trans people who just need someone to talk to.

Trans Lifeline provides live, one-on-one phone support, as well as large numbers of online resources for transgender and gender-questioning individuals. The hotline is open 24 hours a day. It is only guaranteed to be staffed from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. EST, but operators are often also available at other times.

In addition to information resources, Trans Lifeline offers microgrants to individuals who need financial support when updating their name and gender on their legal documents. They accept a limited number of applications each month. However, they will pay the entire fee for most document changes other than birth certificates.


La línea directa de Trans Lifeline es un servicio de apoyo entre compañeros dirigido por personas trans, para personas trans. Nuestros operadores están ubicados en todo EE. UU. Y Canadá, y todos son trans identificados. Si está en crisis o simplemente necesita alguien con quien hablar, incluso si se trata solo de si es o no es trans, llámenos. Haremos todo lo posible para apoyarlo y brindarle recursos.

Nuestra línea directa se lanzó poco después del Día de la Remembranza Trans en 2014 en respuesta a la epidemia de suicidio en nuestra comunidad. Creemos que algunos de los mejores apoyos que una persona trans en crisis puede tener es la oportunidad de hablar con un miembro de nuestra comunidad con experiencia de vida compartida.

Trans Lifeline is training Spanish speaking volunteers who identify as transgender and want to support the Translatinx community by being a volunteer operator for our dedicated Spanish hotline. This line will launch this summer.

See article on KPTV at: https://www.kptv.com/news/go-teams-clackamas-co-launches-program-to-help-people-struggling-with-stress-anxiety-during-covid/article_d3383498-897f-11ea-9c43-9b4da6c01dc7.html

“Go Teams” wear protective gear and can go into the community and meet with the person who is struggling and listen to their story.  They are trained in psychological first aid which is described as “a provider going to connect with an individual by really listening and showing empathy,” but “[it] is not therapy or case management…[or] crisis mental health services.”

This number is not just a crisis line, the staff there can provide support for anyone who might be worried or anxious about what is going on.

  • Take care of yourself, your friends, and your family
    Helping others cope with their stress can also make your community stronger.
  • Take a break from the news
    Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories, including social media. Hearing about the pandemic repeatedly can be upsetting.
  • Take care of your body
    Take deep breaths, stretch, or meditate. Try to eat healthy, well-balanced mealsexercise regularlyget plenty of sleep, and avoid alcohol and drugs.
  • Make time to unwind
    Try to do some other activities you enjoy.
  • Connect with others
    While we may not be able to have conversations face to face, we can still reach out and check on each other with the use of technology. Connect with others via phone or text. Use platforms like Facetime or Zoom for video chat or download apps like Marco Polo – a free face-to-face video messaging app – that helps people stay close.
  • Talk about your concerns with a Peer Support Specialist
    This is a person who uses their lived experience of recovery from mental illness and/or addiction, plus skills learned in formal training, to deliver services to promote mind-body recovery and resiliency.

This is a unique time that leaves many parents questioning what to say to their children and how to address the possible emotional fallout from this situation. Here are some suggestions on how to help children cope.

Remember, call the Clackamas County crisis and support line at 503-655-8585 or your healthcare provider if stress gets in the way of your daily activities for several days in a row. You are not alone in this. We are here to support you.

A safe place to talk. A safe place to listen.

People grieving a death often feel like no one understands what they’re going through. And truthfully, no one’s grief is exactly same. But people tell us the help they appreciate most comes from sharing with others who are also grieving a death.

Our children’s support groups are designed around age, type of death, and the connection to the person who died. Parent/adult caregiver groups run at the same time as the children’s support groups. Around 500 children and 350 adult family members come to our groups each month. Each person decides how long he or she wants to be at The Dougy Center.

In the groups, there is no right or wrong way to be. Nobody will tell you it’s time to move on. Or that an emotion you have is wrong or inappropriate. Here, through talking and listening, you’re free to find hope and comfort in your own personal way. Children can express themselves through play, music, art, games, and sharing.

Our unique approach, using peer group support to help people discover their own way through grief, has made The Dougy Center a worldwide leader in the field. More than 500 programs based on our model now thrive in the U.S., Canada, Africa, Australia, Europe and Japan. Our guidebooks assist parents, schools and others who deal with children affected by death, and our children’s activity books provide them an outlet for expression.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, The Dougy Center is hosting virtual support groups for our bereavement and Pathways programs. If your family lives in the Portland metro area and would like to participate, please call 503.775.5683 or email help@dougy.org.

At The Dougy Center we realize that:

  • Grief is a natural reaction to death;
  • Each individual has a natural capacity to heal from loss;
  • Duration and intensity of grief are unique to each individual; and
  • Caring and acceptance assist in the healing process.

Orientation

Orientation lasts approximately one hour. During that time, adults and children/teens are broken into separate groups where we explain the program. Questions are answered, and everyone is given a tour. Children and teens watch a Dougy Center video produced by the TV program 20/20. The adults learn about how to have a child or teen begin participation at the Center and receive all the application forms. Coming to an orientation does not mean the child/teen becomes a participant. We encourage the adults to allow the children and teens to make the final decision for themselves.

LYGHT Groups – Listening and Led by Youth in Foster Care: Grief, Hope, and Transitions

At the core of the L.Y.G.H.T. program, we aim to raise awareness about how grieving youth in foster care experience marginalization on various levels, create ways to provide trauma-informed peer support to youth in foster care, and promote the importance of moving the child welfare community toward a grief-informed holistic model of care.

“It helps you to feel like you are not alone. They are also going through something as well and you can help each other.” – L.Y.G.H.T. program participant

https://www.facebook.com/pg/TheYouthERA/about/?ref=page_internal

YOUTH ERA WORKS TO EMPOWER YOUNG PEOPLE AND CREATE BREAKTHROUGHS WITH THE DEDICATED SYSTEMS THAT SERVE THEM.

The success of young adults affects all of us. Each of us, whether we realize it or not, benefits when a young person graduates from high school, finds a job that helps them pay their rent, or gains access to effective services and supports.
YouthEra creates solutions for communities across the country that look beyond short-term assistance for the few and toward sustainable support for the many. When YouthEra opens up a new drop-in center, saving communities hundreds of thousands of dollars, it’s not just the young people or even their families who benefit. With YouthEra services, young people have a much better chance of becoming happy, successful, and contributing adult members of their communities, and everyone reaps the rewards.
With your support, we are empowering young people to create personal, community and national change.
OUR IMPACT | YouthEra creates lasting positive change in the lives of young people and the systems that serve them. By uniting a diverse collective of young adults and organizations around innovative solutions, YouthEra impacts thousands each year.
OUR FOCUS | YouthEra works to provide accessible support services to all young people. We focus on direct service, training, and advocacy—the building blocks for creating lasting change for young people in communities across the country.
OUR WORK | YouthEra envisions a future where every young person has the opportunity to lead a happy, successful life, and whole communities flourish as a result. Every day, with the help of caring people like you, we are getting closer to seeing our dream become a reality.
The work we do is fueled by the unmatched dedication of our staff, the young people we serve, and the system partners we collaborate with who give their time and voices to empower young lives and improve our communities. Every day, our team creates positive change in a multitude of ways. Change happens when we support young people as they work to complete high school, find jobs, when we advocate for systems change, and so much more.

Excerpt(s):

Whoever you are and whatever you may be going through, you are welcome on the Warmline!

Our caring team of trained peers offers nonjudgmental and confidential peer support every day.

No appointments needed! We are here for you!

Our goal is to connect with you, to listen, and to discover together how we can make sense of our experiences. We understand that everyone has a unique worldview. People can see more possibilities for ourselves when we connect with a compassionate peer.

Our Warmline Team members are people who have experienced life challenges – including moods, voices, visions, trauma, and addictions. We know what it is like to feel big feelings or to find ourselves in moments when there seems to be little to hope for. No need to go through this alone… Give us a call! David Romprey Oregon Warmline 1-800-698-2392

Intentional Peer Support (IPS) provides a powerful framework for creating relationships where both people learn and grow together. IPS is used across the world in community, peer support, and human services settings, and is a tool for community development that honors each person’s strengths and innate value. Why IPS? Peers come together around shared experiences and often a desire to change lives. But without a new framework to build upon, people frequently re-enact “help” based on what was done to them. IPS offers a foundation for doing something different. We focus on building relationships that are mutual, explorative, and conscious of power. We won’t try to “fix” you, but we would love to connect with you to listen, share, and learn with you as we both move forward in our life journeys.

Our confidential and non-judgmental peer support starts with the premise that people have learned to make meaning of their experiences and relationships out of everything they have learned in their lives. We know that this has lead many people to feel undeserving, distrusting, and inherently flawed. Without understanding how we, as individuals, have come to know what we know about being in relationship and the world around us, we are likely to have trouble, not only with emotional distress, but also with a continuous struggle when there is tension in relationship or in one’s community.


We believe that crisis is an opportunity to learn. In a mutual and respectful conversation, peers discover together how they have developed their beliefs about themselves and the world in which they live. Together, help and crisis are redefined and have new meaning. Each person has the opportunity to challenge themselves to learn how they might change their trauma story of victimhood and crisis to one of mental wellness.


Any Oregonian needing support may call our David Romprey Oregon Warmline to speak to a trained peer. We do not give advice or attempt to ‘get’ any one to do anything. We are there to listen and validated the caller’s feelings and experiences. Together we have a conversation in which we both become more self aware while learning and growing together. We share experience and knowledge in order to discover ways in which we both learn new ways of managing our feelings and discover healthier ways of being in relationship with others. Once where an individual had to “cope” with an issue, they may learn to challenge their beliefs regarding that issue, have a different experience of the situation and no longer have to “cope” because the issue no longer exists. The use of this David Romprey Oregon Warmline may help people decrease the need for frequent doctor’s visits, emergency room treatment, involvement with law enforcement, and the need for more intensive care.

Excerpt(s):

Victory Tips is a peer-support outreach ministry – it is ordinary people with compassion and commitment to share what they have learned to help others get healed emotionally. Since 2004, Victory Tips has been using the truths in God’s Word to help people find victory over their life’s challenges. We live in an age where the problems of discouragement, anxiety, and depression, have come to the forefront of people’s attention. Jesus did tell us we would have problems in our lives, He said in John 16:33, “In the world, you shall have tribulation.” But then He said, “Be of good cheer.” This tells us that it is possible to have problems in our lives and still feel hopeful, optimistic, and even cheerful. We can because God has given who us His Word. We can use it as a weapon against the darkness that tries to hinder our happiness.  Jesus, Himself, was not immune to Satan’s attempts to derail His life, and He shows us how to disarm Satan when he tries to disturb our peace and happiness. That’s what this book is all about. It lays out the tools in God’s Word that we can use to liberate ourselves so that we live the best life possible – a life of Victory!

The primary purpose of this book is to engage people in group discussions about their life’s challenges, and how to overcome them. After someone’s life has been healed, they are then given the opportunity to use this program to help others who are having difficulties in their life. We encourage healed individuals to team up with others and commit to leading a weekly recovery group of their own. It can be held in their home, a church, or some other public venue. It can also be held by way of a conference call. A group leader’s life will become so much richer for doing so. They will be helping people to see that what Jesus said in John 10:10 is true. He said, “I am come that they might have Life and that they might have it more abundantly.” Together we can show everyone how they can live a life free anxiety and depression.

When someone comes to us for help, we take it very seriously. As a peer-led group, we know what it is like to have chronic psychiatric issues. We know the effect they can have on family and friends. We also know how they can impact a career. So when someone comes to us for help, we reach out with empathy and dignity. We do our best to provide daily telephone support. We share Bible truths that have helped us in our own recoveries, and we pray for people. In addition, we help people find personal support right where they live. With everyone working together, we begin to see a brand new person emerge from the pain that once held them down. In the end, lives are changed, the Gospel is proven, and Christ is glorified. We welcome you to inquire how your life, or a friend’s life, can be helped by this Bible-based ministry. Contact us today.

About YouthERA

Excerpts last viewed online 2020 Jun 15 from:

https://www.facebook.com/pg/TheYouthERA/about/?ref=page_internal

YOUTH ERA WORKS TO EMPOWER YOUNG PEOPLE AND CREATE BREAKTHROUGHS WITH THE DEDICATED SYSTEMS THAT SERVE THEM.

The success of young adults affects all of us. Each of us, whether we realize it or not, benefits when a young person graduates from high school, finds a job that helps them pay their rent, or gains access to effective services and supports.
YouthEra creates solutions for communities across the country that look beyond short-term assistance for the few and toward sustainable support for the many. When YouthEra opens up a new drop-in center, saving communities hundreds of thousands of dollars, it’s not just the young people or even their families who benefit. With YouthEra services, young people have a much better chance of becoming happy, successful, and contributing adult members of their communities, and everyone reaps the rewards.
With your support, we are empowering young people to create personal, community and national change.
OUR IMPACT | YouthEra creates lasting positive change in the lives of young people and the systems that serve them. By uniting a diverse collective of young adults and organizations around innovative solutions, YouthEra impacts thousands each year.
OUR FOCUS | YouthEra works to provide accessible support services to all young people. We focus on direct service, training, and advocacy—the building blocks for creating lasting change for young people in communities across the country.
OUR WORK | YouthEra envisions a future where every young person has the opportunity to lead a happy, successful life, and whole communities flourish as a result. Every day, with the help of caring people like you, we are getting closer to seeing our dream become a reality.
The work we do is fueled by the unmatched dedication of our staff, the young people we serve, and the system partners we collaborate with who give their time and voices to empower young lives and improve our communities. Every day, our team creates positive change in a multitude of ways. Change happens when we support young people as they work to complete high school, find jobs, when we advocate for systems change, and so much more.

Toll-Free Parent Warmline: 1-833-REACH-OR / 1-833-732-2467

Weekdays 12pm-7pm PST except holidays

Welcome to Reach Out Oregon!

Parents know how it can be lonely, frightening and isolating to care for a young person experiencing emotional, behavioral and mental health challenges. It can be hard to figure out where and how to reach out for help and information. Most of us feel disoriented when trying to find needed support for what our family is facing.  Shame and stigma surrounding these issues can make it even more challenging.

As caregivers ourselves, we have direct lived experience navigating challenges on behalf of our children and families. And as a community, we have much to offer one another. This is what Reach Out Oregon is all about, a supportive community where you will find:

  • Inspiration
  • Connection
  • Compassion
  • Support

  Family Self-Care during COVID-19

  • Have a special friendly online conversation about Family Self-Care during COVID-19.
  • More events coming, stay tuned.
  • Learn about fun activities to bring back to your family.
  • If you’d like to continue the Family Self-Care discussion or have ideas you’d like to share, please join our discussion forum: https://www.reachoutoregon.org/forums/forum/self-care/

About ZIA Young Adult Access Center

The Zia Young Adult Access Center provides peer support for young adults ages 16-22.  Zia prioritizes youth autonomy, liberation, and support. Our concentrations are to support young adults who express and self-identify with different human experiences (societal and/or social class impacts like trauma, mental health, and substance use). We offer support and advocacy for young adults and require no registration, referral, or health insurance. All of our peer support is free of cost and is intended to be accessible. We offer youth-held and peer-run, community spaces, groups, and events. As a peer-led group, our aim is to offer self-determined resource connections (education, employment, family support, and more).

https://www.facebook.com/pg/TheYouthERA/about/?ref=page_internal

YOUTH ERA WORKS TO EMPOWER YOUNG PEOPLE AND CREATE BREAKTHROUGHS WITH THE DEDICATED SYSTEMS THAT SERVE THEM.

The success of young adults affects all of us. Each of us, whether we realize it or not, benefits when a young person graduates from high school, finds a job that helps them pay their rent, or gains access to effective services and supports.
YouthEra creates solutions for communities across the country that look beyond short-term assistance for the few and toward sustainable support for the many. When YouthEra opens up a new drop-in center, saving communities hundreds of thousands of dollars, it’s not just the young people or even their families who benefit. With YouthEra services, young people have a much better chance of becoming happy, successful, and contributing adult members of their communities, and everyone reaps the rewards.
With your support, we are empowering young people to create personal, community and national change.
OUR IMPACT | YouthEra creates lasting positive change in the lives of young people and the systems that serve them. By uniting a diverse collective of young adults and organizations around innovative solutions, YouthEra impacts thousands each year.
OUR FOCUS | YouthEra works to provide accessible support services to all young people. We focus on direct service, training, and advocacy—the building blocks for creating lasting change for young people in communities across the country.
OUR WORK | YouthEra envisions a future where every young person has the opportunity to lead a happy, successful life, and whole communities flourish as a result. Every day, with the help of caring people like you, we are getting closer to seeing our dream become a reality.
The work we do is fueled by the unmatched dedication of our staff, the young people we serve, and the system partners we collaborate with who give their time and voices to empower young lives and improve our communities. Every day, our team creates positive change in a multitude of ways. Change happens when we support young people as they work to complete high school, find jobs, when we advocate for systems change, and so much more.

Disaster Distress Helpline

SAMHSA’s Disaster Distress Helpline provides 24/7, 365-day-a-year crisis counseling and support to people experiencing emotional distress related to natural or human-caused disasters.

The Disaster Distress Helpline, 1-800-985-5990, is a 24/7, 365-day-a-year, national hotline dedicated to providing immediate crisis counseling for people who are experiencing emotional distress related to any natural or human-caused disaster. This toll-free, multilingual, and confidential crisis support service is available to all residents in the United States and its territories. Stress, anxiety, and other depression-like symptoms are common reactions after a disaster. Call 1-800-985-5990 or text TalkWithUs to 66746 to connect with a trained crisis counselor.

Counseling Services

The Disaster Distress Helpline puts people in need of counseling on the path to recovery. Our staff members provide counseling and support before, during, and after disasters and refer people to local disaster-related resources for follow-up care and support. Since its launch in February 2012, the Disaster Distress Helpline has provided counseling and support in response to disasters such as Hurricane Sandy, the Boston Marathon bombing, and the Ebola outbreak.

The Disaster Distress Helpline is staffed by trained counselors from a network of crisis call centers located across the United States. These counselors provide:

  • Crisis counseling for people in emotional distress related to any natural or human-caused disaster
  • Information on how to recognize distress and its effects on individuals and families
  • Tips for healthy coping
  • Referrals to local crisis call centers for additional follow-up care and support

When you call or text, crisis counselors will listen to what’s on your mind with patience and without judgment. There is no need to give any identifying information when you contact the Disaster Distress Helpline. The counselor may ask you for some basic information at the end of the call, but these questions are optional and are intended to help SAMHSA keep track of the types of calls it receives.

Who Should Contact the Disaster Distress Helpline?

This crisis support service is for anyone experiencing emotional distress related to disasters such as:

The Disaster Distress Helpline also answers calls and texts related to infectious disease outbreaks, such as the Ebola outbreak, incidents of community unrest, and other traumatic events.

The impact of crises may affect people in different ways. Learn how to recognize the warning signs and risk factors for emotional distress related to natural and human-caused disasters.

The Disaster Distress Helpline is open to everyone. This includes survivors of disasters; loved ones of victims; first responders; rescue, recovery, and relief workers; clergy; and parents and caregivers. You may call for yourself or on behalf of someone else.

Call or Text

From the United States and its territories, call 1-800-985-5990 to connect with a trained crisis counselor, 24/7. Spanish-speakers can call the hotline and press “2” for 24/7 bilingual support.

Callers to the hotline can also connect with counselors in over 100 other languages via 3rd-party interpretation services; to connect with a counselor in your primary language, simply indicate your preferred language to the responding counselor and she/he will connect to a live interpreter (interpretation in less commonly-spoken languages may require calling back at an appointed time). Learn more and download information about the Disaster Distress Helpline in 30 of the most commonly-spoken languages in the U.S.

To connect with a live DDH crisis counselor 24/7 via SMS, from the 50 states text “TalkWithUs” for English or “Hablanos” for Spanish to 66746. Spanish-speakers from Puerto Rico can text “Hablanos” to 1-787-339-2663.

Texting is subscription-based and only involves a few steps:

  1. Enroll in the service by texting TalkWithUs or Hablanos exactly as written. It’s important to do this before sending your first text message because otherwise the enrollment may fail, and you will not be able to speak with a counselor, or you may accidentally subscribe to another service.
  2. Look for confirmation that your subscription was successful. You will receive a Success! message if it was.
  3. To unsubscribe, text Stop or Unsubscribe to 66746 (or 1-787-339-2663 from Puerto Rico) at any time. For help, text Help to 66746 (or 1-787-339-2663 from Puerto Rico).

Additional information:

Since 2008, the Alliance of Hope has been working to decrease stigma, increase understanding of the suicide loss experience, and provide direct support to survivors.

  • Every 40 seconds, someones dies by suicide, leaving 6-8 loved ones grieving devastating loss.
  • In the U.S., 45 million people have survived suicide loss.
  • Every day, thousands of people seek support after suicide.

Suicide loss survivors share a singular bond. Although each of our situations is unique, we tend to experience similar feelings, questions, and stages of grief. Support groups provide a good opportunity to meet others who understand and can result in deep friendships.
