eight Psychological Well being Sources in Indiana – AgriNews

– Resources are available for those seeking support during difficult times.

Be Well is an initiative of the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration. Hoosiers can call 24/7 to speak to a trained advisor in confidence. The service is free.

If you know someone who may be struggling with mental health problems, start a conversation as soon as possible.

“How we support one another is key,” said Jennifer Sullivan, secretary for the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration, during a webinar hosted by the AgrIInstitute.

“First, we can connect with each other. People with new or existing mental health problems are often reluctant to share these feelings. So we have to ask. You can view it as a weakness, or worse, say it is a weakness. Is not it.

“Please ask your friends or family if their behavior is changing. Check in often. Make a transfer to Be Well Indiana, either online or through 211. “
