Mental Health Counseling and Support is Available.
Are you, or someone you know, having a hard time during the COVID-19? You are not alone. Many people are feeling higher levels of anxiety and depression. They are worried about their job, family, money, food, and more. Domestic abuse is on the rise as “Safer-at-Home” isn’t always “Safer at Home”. Milwaukee County offers a variety of services…many are at low or no-cost. Some are available 24 hours a day. It’s okay to seek help. Please share these resources with people who may be in need.
Please note, Impact 2-1-1 is a free service that can connect you to food resources, counseling, addiction recovery, shelter, medical services, and more. Visit: IMPACT 2-1-1

National Domestic Violence Hotline
Safer-at-Home isn’t always “Safer at Home”. If you are victim of Domestic Abuse, there is a safe and secret way to get help. Visit the National Domestic Violence Hotline at https://www.thehotline.org/
or…call 1-800-7997233 or text LOVEIS to 22522.
Abuse is about power and control. When survivors are forced to stay in the home or in close proximity to their abuser more frequently, an abuser can use any tool to exert control over their victim, including a national health concern such as COVID-19. In a time where companies may be encouraging that their employees work remotely, and the CDC is encouraging “social distancing,” an abuser may take advantage of an already stressful situation to gain more control.
