|Holiday Season Snowballing People’s Emotions|
Resources available to people in emotional crisis during and after holidays
Boulder, CO – Mental Health Partners (MHP), a nonprofit organization dedicated to mental health and wellness, serving Boulder and Broomfield Counties, offers a free, 24-hour crisis hotline, a child crisis hotline, a rape crisis line and free referrals to other community resources, supporting those facing an emotional crisis. MHP’s hotline also offers coaching, support and safety planning to friends and family members seeking assistance for a loved one in crisis.
“The stress of the holiday season can magnify existing stressors such as loss of a loved one, financial strain or living up to family expectations, affecting one’s physical and mental health,” said Dr. Jeff Almony, MHP’s Medical Director. “Typically, emotional crises and suicide rates increase after the holidays, because for some, it takes everything they have to make it through. Each one of us has the potential to make an enormous difference for the people we know, simply by reaching out and offering support and resources to those we think need it.”
