“If you know someone who’s depressed, please resolve never to ask them why. Depression isn’t a straightforward response to a bad situation; depression just is, like the weather.”

― Stephen Fry


Hello, Salem!

I’m hearing from a lot of people who are feeling lost right now. Some are blaming it on daylight savings, others on the lack of sunlight. Others are reacting to the election results, or the change in lifestyle now that the election is over. And others are reacting to the loss of loved ones or concerns about COVID-19, especially with the upcoming holidays.

Whatever the cause, if you are feeling blue, don’t be afraid to ask for assistance. Here are some groups that can help:

  • NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Health. 24-hour hotline: 1-800-950-6264. https://www.nami.org/Home
  • Center for Life Management (603) 434-1577, Option 1. https://www.centerforlifemanagement.org/
  • #SuicideAwareness: 1-800-273-8255.

Try to stay positive, stay safe, and always, be kind.
