SAGE is proud to partner with the New York City Department for the Aging, Thrive NYC and our SAGE Puerto Rico affiliate at Waves Ahead in a public health campaign for Puerto Rican LGBT elders in New York City and Puerto Rico. The campaign seeks to provide help via SAGE’s National LGBT Elder Hotline in the U.S. and a telephone helpline in Puerto Rico run by SAGE Puerto Rico at Waves Ahead.
Recent natural disasters and COVID-19 have devastated our community and Puerto Rico – leaving many of us to deal with the loss of jobs, homes and loved ones. If you’re struggling with depression, anxiety or thoughts of suicide, YOU’RE NOT ALONE.
Talking about it is the first step in feeling better.
Here are some more steps that can help you cope
- Stay connected with family and friends to talk about your feelings
- Take care of your body by eating healthy and staying active
- Find ways to do things you enjoy safely
THERE IS NO SHAME IS ASKING FOR HELP!
