In troubled times, benefit helps you draw strength
The COVID-19 pandemic and the recent fires in Southern Oregon have been tough on many people, especially those facing serious economic concerns, life changes, chronic health conditions and even mood changes from the shortening fall days.
MyStrength, which went active for Asante in January, has resources available to help you help yourself or a loved one. The site and mobile app offers evidence-based approaches and resources for:
Depression. Interactive mood management program teaches cognitive behavioral therapy, or CBT, in an engaging step-by-step approach.
Stress. Core tenets of positive psychology and mindfulness shared in a practical context help you handle workplace or personal stress.
Chronic pain. Peer-led program teaches coping strategies for coping with pain, managing opioid use and creating positive interactions with care teams.

Substance use. Based on readiness to change, this dynamic program builds awareness of usage patterns alongside in-depth CBT-based relapse prevention for a powerful recovery experience.

Suicide is a leading cause of death among adults in the U.S. However, many of those who have thoughts of dying by suicide do not make a suicide plan. More still never make an attempt.
If your loved one is in immediate risk of hurting themselves, call 911 or go with them to the nearest emergency room right away.
If your loved one has the means to die by suicide, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline immediately at (800) 237-TALK or text HOME to 741-741 to talk to a Crisis Text Line counselor right away.
