Helping Hands May: Starting Family Conversations
IAM Peer Volunteers:
Because of the pandemic, we are seeing in up tic in anxiety, depression and substance abuse disorders (SUD). SAMHSA, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Agency, has some great resources for families who have someone experiencing a mental health concern or SUD.This month shares resources for families, and some ideas about how to start a difficult conversation with some specific questions.
As always, count on your Regional Representatives, your Airline Coordinators and me to help with any issue. Thank you for all you are doing to help your co-workers get through this very difficult period.
