Spiritual, emotional support for flood victims


A program of the General Board of Pensions and Health Benefits is offering emotional and spiritual support for flood victims.

Optum has a help line that will provide affected residents access to specially trained mental health specialists. The company’s public toll-free help line number, 866-342-6892, is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for as long as necessary. The service is free of charge and open to anyone. Specially trained Optum mental health specialists help people manage their stress and anxiety so they can continue to address their everyday needs. Callers may also receive referrals to community resources to help them with specific concerns, including financial and legal matters.  
Along with the toll-free help line, emotional support resources and information are available online at www.liveandworkwell.com. The website will have a Special Alert up in the rotating Spotlight area on both the member and public sites.
