address your stress image

You feel stressed - we feel it too. Since 2020, stress levels have gone up in populations across the world. But stress doesn’t have to derail our lives. The Address Your Stress campaign explains how stress affects the mind and body - and what you can do to interrupt stress before it causes harm to you, your family, and your community.

Suicide Prevention

Suicide is a serious, but preventable public health problem. Integral Care, as the local authority for behavioral health and developmental disabilities, has taken the lead on initiatives to help educate our community in hopes of collaboratively preventing suicides from occurring.

If you or someone you are concerned about has expressed thoughts of suicide, please call the 24/7 Crisis Helpline at 512-472-HELP (4357) or our toll-free 24/7 Crisis Helpline at 844-398-8252.
