Stress, Anxiety and Loneliness
Well, it’s that time of year again — and many of you are stressed, anxious, lonely or all the above. In years past, we’ve taken calls from many of you who are justifiably feeling overwhelmed. Given this election season, there may be more anxiety than in past years. The Structure team gets it and is kicking into gear. We have now created an SOS path to us. One of our companies, FLYP, enables us (and you, if you wish) to add anonymous numbers on our phone so we can post publicly and use these numbers as SOS numbers. This is a valuable way for us to provide you with a direct path to members on our team, with designated SOS Structure numbers for you to text and call. We have listed Jillian’s, Jacob’s and my numbers below. We would like you to first text us your SOS to see if we can help you in real time. If texting is not effective, then request a call and we will jump on it as soon as humanly possible. We promise.
Please note that these aren’t pitches or lengthy business calls. If you want to remain anonymous, download your own flyp number and text from there. If you are suicidal (not kidding), please call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline immediately — we’re not pros — we’re just trying to lend an ear and maybe some advice. Here’s the NSP number (800) 273–8255. We’ll be checking for texts a few times per day, so you should hear from us soon. We expect a minimum of 75 people to message us, so it may take a day or so for us to respond. We know you might have stronger relationships with one member of our team over another. Just know that we are all here for you. Please feel free to reach out to any of us, any time. As we are painfully aware that the holiday seasons is not the only time when challenges mount up, SOS Structure will be permanent, providing you a lifeline throughout the year. We believe it not only takes a village…it takes a caring voice. We’ve got THREE for you.
Thanks for everything you do, and be good to yourself!
Mike, Jillian and Jacob
