Dear FSS participants and Community Members,
“Are you okay? So many people have been impacted by the unique stressors of the pandemic. Many of them are suffering in silence, not knowing what is happening or having the words to name it. They may not have experienced depression, anxiety, or other mental health concerns before. But the reality is that the times we are living in are causing our mental and emotional states to change.
Family Services of Northeast Wisconsin, Catalpa Health, Samaritan Counseling Center, and Foundations Health & Wholeness have partnered to let people know that there is no shame in what they are feeling, and they are not alone.
Together, they are urging people to “Look in” and identify what they are feeling, and “Reach Out” to someone they trust to talk about it. If someone you know is struggling, we want to encourage you to be that trusted person who they can talk to.
Participate in the Look in, Reach Out campaign:
¨ Help is available if you need it; find resources online or dial United Way 2-1-1 to connect to local mental health services..”
