It’s a stressful time.
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected our lives in ways we never knew possible; disrupting routines and piling stress on top of uncertainty.
It is completely normal to feel weary.
Now, more than ever, we need to take care of ourselves and check in on family, friends, and neighbors in safe and healthy ways.
We know that talking helps.
Sometimes we simply need to vent, release, or have a sounding board – and talking to a professional to navigate these times can be helpful.
North Range is committed to helping you.
The Warm Line supports any person at any time, no matter what the feeling – high or low.
This service is free and confidential and is staffed by mental health professionals who can:
- Help with recognizing the steps that can be taken toward building new and lasting routines.
- Offer support and suggestions for maintaining resilience.
- Share tips on caring for health and well-being in new ways.
Let’s cool things down before a crisis heats up.
