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.

Help is free and available 24/7. Language interpreters are available.

Safe + Strong Helpline, in partnership with the Oregon Health Authority, is an emotional support and resource referral line that can assist anyone who is struggling and seeking support. Callers do not need to be in a crisis to contact this line.

Many of us are juggling concerns about wildfires and smoke, COVID-19, political unrest, financial instability, and more, in addition to the everyday things we personally struggle with.

Disasters can leave us feeling increased anxiety, worry, anger, or depression. In these challenging times, we provide emotional support, mental health triage, drug and alcohol counseling, or just connection with a person who cares.

If you or a loved one is feeling worried, upset, or overwhelmed, give us a call. Our call counselor will listen, assess your needs, and problem-solve with referral to community services and resources if needed.

“when the world comes crashing at
your feet
it’s okay to let others
help pick up the pieces
if we’re present to take part in your
happiness
when your circumstances are great
we are more than capable
of sharing your pain”

― Rupi Kaur, The Sun and Her Flowers

As we emerge from the winter season, our exposure to limited sunlight and longer periods of darkness may affect our mental and emotional well-being.

Valentine’s Day is around the corner, which can bring with it additional anxiety, depression and other stress about romance and relationships. Research shows that deaf people are more likely to struggle socially, emotionally and with other issues impacting mental health.

Tips for Self-Care

“Recovery is not so much a dream as it is a plan.” – Carolyn Spring

In “Actually, I am Not Okay! Mental Health in the Deaf Community,” Deaf Unity offers some self-care strategies:

  • Don’t be embarrassed to ask for help. You are not alone. It is so important that you do not struggle in silence.
  • Eat well. Deaf nutritionist Jeanann Doyle explains that good nutrition is tied to positive mental health.
  • Enjoy time with friends. Research has shown that early or pervasive lack of communication access with family members and others in the deaf person’s environment are mental health risk factors. Spending quality time with companions may reduce feelings of isolation and loneliness.
  • Be kind to yourself. Negative attitudes from deaf and hearing individuals can be a barrier to healthy social and emotional development. Take part in positive experiences with and about deaf people, which break down negative stereotypes and increases awareness.

Find a Qualified Professional

The number of accessible mental health providers and services has been increasing along with awareness of the diverse communication and identities of deaf individuals.

Technology allows for remote counseling with deaf-sensitive professionals. The Laurent Clerc National Deaf Education Center offers national and statewide directories for mental health services for deaf people.

NDC’s Mental Health Services tip sheet offers several considerations for providing effective counseling services:

  • Direct and effortless communication between the deaf person and practitioner.
  • Practitioner’s cultural competency (i.e. understanding of deaf experiences in a hearing world, communication preferences and deaf culture).
  • Effective and appropriate means of mental health assessments.
  • The importance of accurate and qualified interpretation between ASL and English in mental health settings.

Additional Resources

The National Center for College Students with Disabilities (NCCSD) offers several resources and strategies to locate crisis services, community resources and deaf-accessible hotlines:

  • Crisis Line for VideoPhone users who use American Sign Language (available 24/7): 321-800-3323 (321-800-DEAF)
  • National Suicide Prevention Hotline: To chat online with a counselor (2pm-2am Monday-Friday Eastern Standard Time) TTY Hotline: 800-799-4889
  • Crisis text line: text START to 741-741 (free, available 24/7, sometimes have Deaf counselors available)
  • National Domestic Violence Hotline:
    • E-mail: deafhelp@thehotline.org
    • TTY: 1-800-787-3224 (24/7 hotline)
    • VP: 1-855-812-1001 (Monday to Friday 9AM—5PM Pacific Standard Time

 

Deaf and Hard of Hearing Recovery Project

The Deaf and Hard of Hearing Project is building a welcoming network for Deaf-to-Deaf peer support and training.  We also find hearing friends and allies in mental health programs and support for recovery from traumatic experience.

Who Are We?  on YouTube

Deaf individuals tell their recovery stories through 10-15 minute videos.  All 7 share about being diagnosed with a mental illness and their journey to satisfying, complex lives.  They are open about the dark days and their hope.  All presented in In their native language – American Sign Language with captions in English.  We present them here in the hope of educating and inspiring others and creating community.

Oregon Al-Anon and Alateen Family Groupstext image that says Al-Anon can help, Al-Anon is an anonymous fellowship of people who feel their lives have been deeply affected by someone else's drinking

Al-Anon is an anonymous fellowship of mutual support for people whose lives have been affected by someone else’s drinking.

Alateens are members of the Al‑Anon Family Groups who have suffered because of the alcoholism of a loved one.

Newcomers Information

Excerpt(s):

How will Al-Anon help me?

Many who come to Al-Anon/Alateen are in despair, feeling hopeless, unable to believe that things can ever change. We want our lives to be different, but nothing we have done has brought about change. We all come to Al-Anon because we want and need help.

In Al-Anon and Alateen, members share their own experience, strength, and hope with each other. You will meet others who share your feelings and frustrations, if not your exact situation. We come together to learn a better way of life, to find happiness whether the alcoholic is still drinking or not.

Reprinted with permission of Al-Anon Family Group Headquarters, Inc.

 

Al-Anon can help you:

  • Hear others’ experiences
  • Find healthier ways to respond to the addicted person
  • Understand your own role in addiction and recovery
  • Learn the importance of supporting your loved one
  • Focus on today using the “one step at a time” approach

Al-Anon is not for people trying to find their own recovery. It is only for the people who love and care for them.

**This is a big day for the state. Many thanks to the folks on the front lines who are running vaccination sites and working so hard to get as many people as possible vaccinated.
See below for information on getting scheduled for a vaccine.

What to know before you get vaccinated

Appointments are required.
Multnomah County maintains the COVID-19 Vaccine page which includes information options for scheduling a vaccination and resources for individuals who may need assistance scheduling an appointment due to language or barriers with technology.
Lastly, if you’re an immigrant, please know the following:
All eligible people in Oregon can get the vaccine.
You do NOT need to be a U.S. citizen to get the vaccine.
Getting the vaccine will NOT affect your immigration status or count as a public charge.
You do not need to have or provide a social security number.
You do not need to have identification.

A 12-step recovery program

https://www.foodaddicts.org/

Food addiction can take many forms. Symptoms include obesity, under eating, and bulimia. People often think of the term “eating disorders” when describing the disease of food addiction. Food addicts are obsessed with food, body size, and weight. We spend our days thinking about when and what we are going to eat or not eat. Binging, purging, and dieting are a way of life. The bottom line is that we can’t stop thinking about eating. Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous (FA) offers relief from the symptoms of eating disorders and guidance on living in recovery.

Research-Based Publications for Families withLGBTQ Children

EVIDENCE-BASED FAMILY GUIDANCE RESOURCES

The evidence-based resources included here were developed by the Family Acceptance Project (FAP) and are rooted in FAP’s groundbreaking research with LGBTQ youth, young adults and families. This research and guidance from the lived experiences of ethnically, racially and religiously diverse families with LGBTQ young people enabled FAP to develop the first evidence-based family support model to prevent health risks and promote well-being for LGBTQ children and youth. FAP continues to produce a series of evidence-based resources to help to decrease health risks and promote well-being for LGBTQ children and youth.

FAMILY EDUCATION BOOKLETS

“Best Practice” Resources for Suicide Prevention for LGBTQ Youth
(English, Spanish & Chinese and a growing series of faith-based versions)

Key information from FAP’s research on how families can help support their lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBTQ) children to reduce health risks and support positive development. These family education booklets have been designated as “Best Practice” resources for suicide prevention for LGBTQ young people by the Best Practices Registry for Suicide Prevention.

HEALTHY FUTURES POSTER SERIES

Available from FAP in 10 languages, including English, Spanish, Chinese (traditional and simplified), Hindi, Korean, Japanese, Punjabi, Tagalog and Vietnamese. Other versions are in development.

Series of 3 posters that tell the “story” of family accepting and rejecting behaviors and show how these behaviors contribute to serious health risks including suicidal behavior and drug use and how they help protect against risk and promote well-being. Each poster includes common accepting and rejecting behaviors that are expressed across diverse cultures. The posters are available to download free in 4 sizes and include the camera-ready art to take to a commercial printer.

DEVELOPING THE FIELD OF FAMILY SUPPORT FOR LGBTQ CHILDREN & YOUTH

Providing Services & Support

Although it may seem surprising to many people who are concerned about the health and well-being of children and youth, before the Family Acceptance Project was established 20 years ago, no one had studied LGBTQ young people and families. As a result, many mainstream services, including government agencies, have not included services and support for diverse families with LGBTQ children. As the Family Acceptance Project has shown, families can learn to support their LGBTQ children when services are provided in ways that are culturally relevant for them. Culturally appropriate services are needed to help families learn to support their LGBTQ children to reduce serious health risks, strengthen families and support positive development. Use this website to learn about these issues to provide support for LGBTQ children, youth and families – urgently needed now as LGBTQ young people and families are coping with the losses from Covid-19.

FAITH COMMUNITIES AND THE WELL-BEING OF LGBTQ YOUTH

A publication for faith communities and families on supporting LGBTQ youth to prevent mental health risks and to increase support, published by the Group for the Advancement of Psychiatry. GAP is a professional organization of thought leaders in the field of psychiatry who provide guidance on addressing critical emerging mental health issues.

Oregon Emergency Rental Assistance Program

(OERAP) helps eligible low-income households with their past due rent and utilities. This program uses funds from the federal Emergency Rental Assistance Program, which allocated a collective total of $280 million to Oregon, the City of Portland, and multiple counties in the state. In most cases, approved applications will result in payments made directly to landlords and utility providers.

Renters who are eligible for the program may request rent and/or utility assistance dating back to March 13, 2020 (prior expenses are not eligible). OERAP will cover up to 12 months of past due rent and three months of forward rent, once all past due rent is paid. OERAP will also cover past due utility costs including electricity, gas, home energy services, water, sewer, trash removal, internet and bulk fuels. Costs that will NOT be covered include: homeowner costs, homeowner utilities, landlord-paid utilities, landlord-paid property taxes, property insurance, phone, and renter insurance.

If approved, in most cases, payments will be made directly to the landlord, property owner or utility company on the tenant’s behalf via direct deposit or check. OERAP funds are not first-come-first-serve. Funds will be distributed based on a formula that prioritizes applications based on need. Everyone who turns in a completed application will have their application reviewed.

Important Update:

Safe Harbor Eviction Protection Period Extended

  • Oregon Legislators recently held a special session to extend eviction protections known as “Safe Harbor” protections in Oregon (SB 278). As a result of recent legislation, tenants have protection from eviction upon showing their documentation of rental assistance application to their landlord. These protections replace the 60-day period (90 days in some jurisdictions) and now cover the entire time an application is being processed (up until September 30, 2022.)
  • In order to be protected, tenants must give proof of application to their landlord right away (by June 30, 2022 at the latest, or at or before any first court appearance, whichever is sooner.)
  • Anyone who has already applied for assistance and shown documentation of their application to their landlord at or before any first court appearance is now protected from nonpayment eviction until their application is processed.
  • Landlords are required to give 10 days of notice of termination of tenancy for nonpayment until September 30, 2022.
  • Landlords may begin eviction proceedings if you’ve missed rent and haven’t begun an application – apply to an open rental assistance program right away to access these protections!
  • If your application is closed or denied or paid in an amount that is less than is owed, your landlord can move forward with the eviction process for unpaid months.
  • If you have questions about eviction protections, please visit the Oregon Law Center’s website for updates at www.oregonlawhelp.org.

Important Information

for Oregon Renters and Landlords

There is no longer an eviction freeze in Oregon. Renters who are behind on rent or can’t pay future rent should apply for help.

Renters can apply to programs for help paying back and future rent and utilities through:

 

  • 211info.org or call 211 for information on local rent programs, or
  • oregonrentalassistance.org for the Oregon Emergency Rental Assistance Program (OERAP)
    • NOTE: OERAP paused accepting applications on 12/1/21 for at least six weeks while waiting for new state money.

Payments go directly to landlords and utility companies.

Renters should show their landlords proof that they applied for rent help as soon as possible.

Renters are now protected from eviction until their application for rent help is processed if they show proof to their landlord.

 

  • If renters show their landlord proof that they applied for rent help before June 30, 2022, they cannot be evicted until
    • after the application is processed or
    • after September 30, 2022 – whichever is sooner.
  • Renters who already have a court case for unpaid rent should show proof that they applied for help to both their landlord and the judge to get extra time.
  • Until September 30, 2022, any notice to pay rent from a landlord must give 10 days to pay. Notices must also include special information about rent help programs and other protections.

 

Back Rent from April 2020 – June 2021: Time to Pay

The deadline to pay back rent owed for April 2020 – June 2021 is February 28, 2022. Landlords cannot evict tenants for rent owed from this period until March 1, 2022.

 

  • Renters who owe rent from this time period should apply for rent help as soon as possible before March 1, 2022.

 

Landlord Guarantee Program:

Landlords who have delayed evictions for renters who applied for rent help may qualify for this program. More information is available here.

 

  • NOTE: The Landlord Guarantee Program has paused accepting applications while making changes to the program. To get an email when the application system opens up, please share your email address with LGP@homeforward.org.

 

Other Important Changes:

Landlords with renters that owe rent for the April 2020 – June 2021 period cannot:

 

  • evict renters for rent owed for this period (until March 1, 2022)
  • charge fees for unpaid rent for this period, and
  • report renters for past due rent to a consumer credit reporting agency.

Unpaid rent from April 2020 – March 2022 cannot count against renters in future rental applications. (Oregon law SB 282)

Guests – Renters may share housing until February 28, 2022, as long as they are not breaking any laws. This means that until that time, landlords cannot evict or fine renters for having more guests than the landlord’s guest policy allows.

CAKE – 8 Best Support Groups for People Who Lost a Spouse or Partner @ online register for details
Jan 23 all-day

 

 8 Best Online Support Groups for Someone Who Lost a Partner

Coping with the aftermath of a huge loss like this is often lonely. Despite being surrounded by loved ones, it’s hard to feel heard and understood. Leaning on those who have experienced the same grief as you is an effective way to find comfort.

Because we can’t always find this support in person, the internet is a great way to connect with others. There are a number of online support groups specifically for grief and loss.

When searching for that perfect space in cyberspace, look for key indicators of a healthy, active community. Follow these tips below:

  • Effective moderation – Some online communities are unorganized. This isn’t ideal when dealing with strong emotions and real experiences. Make sure your online support group has a strong group of moderators to keep discussions under control.
  • Active posts – You don’t want to find yourself in a digital ghost town. Unfortunately, not all support groups last forever. Look for recent posts to ensure your voice will be heard.
  • Helpful discussion – Not all groups are helpful. Make sure you feel safe and comfortable in the digital support landscape.

Luckily, we’ve done the hard work for you. Below, you’ll find our top suggestions for online support groups ideal for anyone who has suffered the death of a partner.

1. Grief Support on Reddit

Reddit is an online platform with different subreddits for just about anything you can imagine, including grief. The Grief Support group has over 15,000 active members, and it’s a place to share stories, ask questions, and seek advice.

Reading through the stories and questions of others is an integral part of the grieving process. Learning from others who experienced the same things months or even years ago provides much-needed perspective and assistance in this time of mourning.

However, note this group is for any type of loss, though many members did lose their spouse or significant other.

2. Widowers on Reddit

Another Reddit group that deals with grief, specifically for those who have lost a partner, is Widowers. As the group description states, Widowers is a place for anyone who has lost a companion to share and heal.

With over 5,000 active members, this is a community for coming to terms with powerful feelings and experiences. The moderator’s welcome message sums this group up in a few profound words. They write, “We are as varied as the whole world. Except in our grief. In that, we are united and virtually universal.”

3. Cancer Care Bereavement Group

For those who have lost a spouse or partner to cancer, Cancer Care’s support group is here to help. This is a free, 15-week online support group intended for those who lost a spouse within the past 18 months. An oncology social worker leads the group, ensuring that every user experiences real growth.

Losing a spouse to cancer often feels different than losing a spouse in another way. It comes with unique feelings and methods of coping. Finding others to process this with makes a world of a difference.

4. Soaring Spirits

Soaring Spirits is a secular organization that helps people heal throughout the grieving process. They offer members of the community all the tools they need to get started on their path towards a new life. With both online and in-person opportunities, this is a great resource.

Soaring Spirits has a number of grief programs. From an online forum to a widowed pen pal group, there are a lot of ways to get the help you need. There is no need to be a paying member to use these services.

5. National Widowers Organization

The National Widowers Organization is a way to learn more about how men, in particular, deal with the loss of a partner. With specialized support groups for men, this organization helps men to adjust to a new life without their partner.

All resources are free, and you can even find local meetups with others struggling with life after the loss of a partner. Men often suffer many things alone, but this doesn’t have to be one of them.

6. Open to Hope

Open to Hope is a nonprofit that connects people to stories of grief, loss, and survival. While this isn’t a way to talk to others one-on-one, listening to and reading stories similar to your own is often a form of support in itself.

Join the 2 million listeners by following the podcast or read through Open to Hope’s articles. With over 100,000 active readers and 530 unique authors, this is the place to find understanding.

7. Widows Connection

Widows Connection is a place for women to get the peer-to-peer support they need after losing a spouse. This is something that affects women of all stages of life. Managing these new life changes, whether they include financial or family challenges, is never easy.

Widows Connection includes more than just emotional support. It also has legal, financial, and other practice advice specifically for widowed women. The annual fee costs $40, and it includes access to the full range of support resources.

8. The Sisterhood of Widows

Finally, the Sisterhood of Widows is another great support community for women experiencing the loss of a partner. The goal of this Sisterhood is to help women create a new life after the death of a loved one. It’s a way to connect with others to gain insight into your own grief and loneliness.

The Sisterhood of Widows has several Facebook groups specifically for women. There’s no fee to join. As long as you’re ready to start your path to recovery, the Sisterhood is waiting.

5 Tips for Finding an In-Person Support Group

While an online community is a great way to begin your own emotional healing, it is also beneficial to find in-person support. You might be surprised by just how many groups are available in your area. Here are some tips for finding the right group near you.

Start with the list above

Your first step is to use the list of online groups above. Many of these include an in-person group search feature. The larger, national organizations are often facilitating in-person meetings, especially around larger cities.

Ask local organizations

If you don’t have any luck with the organizations above, think local. In-person grief support groups are typically held at:

  • Libraries
  • Community centers
  • Senior centers
  • Churchs

Search online for places and organizations near you to see what they offer. You might also need to call and ask yourself. Don’t feel uncomfortable about asking — it’s common to ask about emotional support groups. They’re more common than you think.

Browse Meetup.com

Meetup is an online platform for connecting with others with similar interests. It’s not just used for fun activities and hangouts. Many widow groups post on Meetup to arrange local events, support groups, and more. Search your local area to see what’s near you.

Search “widow support group + your city” 

Don’t underestimate the power of a simple Google search. By searching your city name and “widow support group” or “grief support group,” you might find just what you’re looking for. It’s also effective to search for these events on social media as well.

Create your own group

Finally, if you don’t find what you’re looking for, why not start your own group? You don’t have to face these feelings alone. More likely than not, there are others locally who are dealing with a similar type of loss.

They might be waiting for an opportunity to connect with others in the same situation. Reach out to local community centers, churches, and organizations to start your own support group.

Find Peace in Connecting with Others

Dealing with the death of a loved one is never easy. It’s especially challenging when this loved one was a partner or spouse. While books on grief and other resources make sense of those feelings, this is only one side of the story.

Sometimes the best growth happens when you have the opportunity to share your experience with others and feel heard by those who “get it.” A support group is a perfect way to find the right listening ear and to grow your own perspective. Learn from each other and grieve together.

For more help with the loss of a loved one, review our guides for handling the first death anniversary as well as what to say on a death anniversary.

Do you experience voices, visions, have intense energy and/ or navigate through exploratory states of consciousness?

You are certainly not alone! In this group we will explore the significance of these experiences together in an open, non-judgmental way. We welcome and highly encourage the pondering and meaning of these experiences on an individual level. Are these experiences spiritual, supernatural, psychological, metaphysical, biological or something else? In this group we have the wonderful opportunity to learn from each other what these experiences could mean and hear multiple perspectives from different vantage points.

This is a free group. No referral is needed. Supportive friends and/or family are welcome.

About Master JianFeng

Master JianFeng Chen is from the Fujian province of China. Inspired by his teachers and experiences, he wanted to bring traditional training of internal/external martial arts to the people of America. In China, martial arts is deeply imbedded in everyday life. Energy work, through Qigong and Tai Chi are often not stressed enough, so the full benefits of practice are not realized. His goal is to bring awareness of your breath, your energy, your movements and how it affects yourself and others so everyone can achieve balance and thus happiness and health in their lives.At the age of 8, JianFeng, joined the Junior Athletic School of Zhangzhou to begin his formal martial arts training. At the age of 11, he was selected to join the Fujian State Athletic Wushu Unit, that is internationally renowned for winning championships, especially in Tai Chi. His teachers were Grand Masters and World Champions in Tai Chi and Wushu.

OSPO – Oregon Senior Peer Outreach by Telephone for Older Adults / Seniors – Weekdays and Weekends @ Phone
Jan 23 all-day

 

Oregon Senior Peer Outreach

Weekdays and Weekends

Older Adult Telephone Support

“No Need To Go It Alone”

Oregon Senior Peer Outreach offers friendly weekly calls to older adults who may be experiencing loneliness, isolation, sadness, grief or loss. This year has been exceptionally challenging for seniors, and our trained senior peers are ready to share their hope and connection!

In every county of the state, we are offering “Holiday Connection Calls!” Our friendly trained senior peer supporters will provide a reliable weekly call to listen, learn and share with you through the fall and winter holidays.

Please let us know you would like our service by calling 1-833-736-4676

or

make a referral online using our Senior Outreach Online Referral Form

Senior Outreach Online Referral Form (CLICK HERE!!!)

If an older adult lives in an OSPO County (Washington, Clatsop, Columbia or Tillamook), we can offer long-term peer partnerships! These weekly calls have proven results of reducing loneliness.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Peers reach out to seniors that feel lonely.

The Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Telephone Service is now accepting referrals from ALL Oregon counties! This peer support program has been designed to increase the well-being of Oregon Seniors (55+) who live in the rural and frontier counties and has now expanded to serve all Oregon older adults who are suffering from COVID isolation. A team of experienced Senior Peer Support staff place weekly calls to connect with isolated Seniors to reduce the health impacts of loneliness and social isolation.

Program leadership is provided by CCS Staff members:

  • Sharon Kuehn, Oregon Warmline/Senior Peer Outreach Program Manager
  • Todd Trautner, Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Program Supervisor
  • Mark Fisher, Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Program Supervisor

Our team of experienced Senior Peer Supporters place weekly telephone calls to elders (55+) in Oregon who want a caring, compassionate friend to talk with. We understand some of the unique challenges of growing older and spending too much time alone. Let us provide a caring, personal connection!

Our goal is to connect with our participants, to listen, and to discover together how we can make sense of our experiences and to find and share hope. We understand that everyone has a unique worldview. Our Senior Peer Supporters are people who have experienced life challenges – including big feelings, voices, visions, trauma, and addictions. Now that we are moving into our golden years, we feel that there is no need to go it alone!

Referrals for persons who may benefit from the new service can be made by filling out the Referral Request form located below, or by calling us at:

1-833-736-4676 (1-833-SeniorOutreach)

Seniors who are 55+ and who:

  • Live in Oregon
  • who may feel isolated and lonely
  • and are interested in receiving weekly phone calls from another senior to build a mutually supportive relationship

Qualifying Seniors and/or persons with physical disabilities will be served. Once our service capacity is reached, a waiting list will be developed.

We look forward to hearing from you!
