WARSAW – Bowen Center in Warsaw is offering services geared to helping people know what to do if they know somebody who might be struggling with mental health issues.
Checking on the mental health of those around is important and recognizing the warning signs of suicidal thoughts can save a life, according to a news release from Bowen Center.
The Mayo Clinic provides a video on how you can help others. The video is aimed at teenagers, however, the information provided can help anyone.
The Bowen Center has changed the ways it is providing its services during this time allowing for greater access to emotional health care than ever before. The service will be able to virtually serve all Indiana residents. Bowen Center has also provided a video detailing their current virtual services.
The SAP (Student Assistant Program) and EAP (Employee Assistant Program) are programs provided by The Bowen Center to help students or employees who are part of an organization that offers the service. Students are able to receive professional assistance for themselves and their families. Each has access to confidential pre-paid counseling sessions with a therapist to help get through some of life’s challenges.
Employees are able to receive confidential care by helping them identify and resolve personal concerns that are affecting job performance. Check if your school or business offers an SAP or an EAP. Both services are being offered by phone.
While it is is not your responsibility to treat your friend or loved one, having the courage to ask questions and refer them to services where they can get help is a gift of hope and kindness they may not get from anyone else, the statement said.
