During Difficult Times, Call4Calm Text Line is Here to Help

If you or a loved one are struggling with stress related to the COVID-19 pandemic, or the protests around the country and need emotional support, text TALK to 552020 for English or HABLAR for Spanish. This service is free and available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Callers seeking assistance remain anonymous and will provide only their first name and zip code, which enables the service to link you to a counselor in your area who is knowledgeable about available local resources.

During uncertain times, life can feel completely disrupted. Things seem confused and sense of time may be lost. You may feel vulnerable and helpless. Sleep patterns may be disrupted, and you may feel tired all the time. Emotional “numbness” may continue as a means of coping with what is happening. As the scope of the impact of the coronavirus becomes more apparent, you may feel overwhelmed and even angry. Protests can cause stress when local incidents are in the news.

Signs of stress may include:

  • Irritability
  • Depression
  • Fearfulness
  • Anger
  • Fatigue
  • Helplessness
  • Physical complaints
  • Sleep disturbance
  • Lack of concentration
  • Loss of appetite

Recognizing these emotions and reactions helps you to better understand your experience and deal with them. In time, we will recover and become stronger together.
