As we continue to navigate this tumultuous time, problem-solving, stress management and adaptation strategies remain important. Take a few minutes to support your mental well-being by doing these self-reflection exercises.
If you are feeling anxious or overwhelmed, the Department of Mental Health Services (DMHS) is available for support. DMHS offers individual psychotherapy, couples counseling, group counseling and psychiatric services. Currently, all services are available via telehealth.
DMHS also can assist in connecting to other resources as needed. IU School of Medicine trainees statewide can reach out to DMHS at:
- Phone: (317) 278-2383
- Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
In urgent situations, the DMHS Crisis Line is available 24/7: (317) 278-4357 (HELP)
- Calls are answered by a licensed mental health clinician who can provide assistance and contact the on-call DMHS clinician for urgent help.
- Anyone can call the crisis line on behalf of a trainee, and calls can be made anonymously.
When should I seek help?
Seek support if you are experiencing these common warning signs and risk factors for emotional distress.
And check out the Mental Health Continuum to determine when it’s time to enlist professional care.
Think about how frequently, and how well, you are performing self-care activities to maintain good health and improve well-being by taking this self-care assessment.
