Bassett Announces New Emotional Support Helpline
As Phase One of reopening New York during COVID-19 unfolds, Bassett Healthcare Network has established a new dedicated emotional support helpline, 607-322-0157. The helpline is available 24/7 and provides free, confidential support to help callers experiencing increased anxiety, a sense of being overwhelmed, depression or similar feelings during this pandemic. Trained mental health professionals staff the emotional support helpline and if needed, they can connect the caller with follow-up professional help after the initial counseling call.
You're preoccupied and having difficulty focusing. Your sleep isn't great. You aren't eating as well as you know you should, or as well as you do normally.
It's perfectly understandable to be anxious during a situation like the one the world is in right now. However, chronic stress isn't good for your body or mind. It’s important to take the time and steps necessary to help ease the pressure you’re feeling, including calling Bassett’s helpline, 607-322-0157, if the stress is overwhelming.
