We keep challenges from turning into crises
Vets4Warriors, housed at the Rutgers University Behavioral Health Care National Call Center in New Jersey, is a one-of-a-kind 24/7 peer support network. Originally supported by the National Guard Bureau and the U.S. Department of Defense, today Vets4Warriors operates independently of the U.S. military, complementing official government resources available to service members and veterans. We are committed to ensuring that all veterans, service members, their families, and caregivers always have direct and immediate access to a peer who understands their life experiences and the challenges they face, and can provide support whenever they confront an issue, wherever they are in the world.Support the show
Hi, how are you? This is Dr. Damaris, Maria Grossman and this is the monthly integrative Show. Today I'm just kind of doing a small public health awareness and to wish everyone Happy Holidays and Happy New Year. But on a serious note, I'd like to also remember and help those that need support during this holiday time. And in the show notes, I'll have mental health crisis hotline information, and also available hotline information for those in need of information on child abuse. Unfortunately, these are hard subjects, but elder dependency, suicide prevention, substance abuse and opioid use domestic violence and poison control. And one of my dear groups that I care about is the vet for Warriors and it's a hotline for those veterans that need to have assistance. So the main Crisis Text hotline is 741741 and those that are in substance abuse need, you can dial 211 And if obviously, if it's an emergency would call 911. But I do think that during the holidays, there are a lot of those that are struggling and that may need a little bit more support or maybe even just a text message or hello or you may know that they may need a Hi how's it going? Have you been even something as small as that could be someone and you could save their life. So I just wanted to you know, just kind of put that out there you know, there's someone in your life that may have a story or a moment or just need a little smile. So um, I hope you guys have a good rest of your week and a good new year if I don't get to touch base with you. And of course all those information will be online and on the show notes and available. Thanks again and us have a blessed day.
