We are here to help.
At Hope Means Nevada, it’s our mission to offer compassionate and reliable human-to-human support for those struggling with suicidal ideation. We provide resources that are relevant to Nevada teens to help enable their mental health journey towards healing.
Talk with your family and friends every day. A call, text, or video chat is the perfect way to check in on those you love and feel closer in this distant time.
Find space to let others share their anxiety and fears. And share yours too. Remember, it’s okay to not be okay.
Take time to move each day, whether it be a walk or some gentle stretches. Eat as healthy as you can, incorporating fruits and veggies when possible. Make sure you’re getting enough sleep, 6-8 hours, and taking some time for yourself.
The 24-hour news cycle isn’t healthy for anyone. Pick two reliable news sources and check for updates. Use outlets such as music, online cooking classes, or meditation to help fill your day.
Remember, there’s no right way to handle this. Be gentle with yourself and those around you.
