Ericka and her story exemplify what it means to be a patient at Therapeutic Health Services. She receives both Opioid Use Treatment as well as Mental Health care. Together these two services overlap to create whole-health wellness in our clients. Together with her Opioid Use Treatment counselor, Richard and her Mental Health Counselor, Ambyr, Ericka has built a life for herself that she could only dream of.

Ericka came to THS in 2015, eager to enter treatment with us. She’d made previous attempts at entering treatment but wasn’t able to gain the personal traction needed to reach the goals set out for her. This time was different, this time Ericka stayed on it to reach sobriety and meet her goals in the five years since. Wanting to help others like her reach their best health, Ericka is starting her bachelors’ program in human services with the eventual goal of becoming a counselor herself. Hear her amazing story of changing her life, healing her family, and creating a bright future for herself.

The need for a focus on suicide prevention is not new. The statistics are clear: any one of us can be affected by suicide either personally or through someone we know. Emotional, situational, health and financial stress or pressures certainly enhance the likelihood for a person to experience depression, anxiety, or a sense of hopelessness leading to thoughts of self-harm. This is even more of a concern in 2020. 

We are faced with the concurrent realities of COVID-19, forest fires and social unrest – all of which have had the effect of increasing factors known to contribute to suicidal thoughts and actions. As we consider Suicide Prevention during the month of September, it is critical we recognize that we – our community – our neighbors – our children – our parents, are experiencing a tremendous amount of situational stress.  We must find creative ways to manage our own stress and to support those around us when our usual coping activities may not be available due to smoke, physical distancing, or closure of our gathering places.  

Research has shown that social connection is one of the most powerful protective factors preventing suicide. While we do need to take care not to spread the COVID-19 virus or to be exposed to unhealthy levels of smoke, we have the ability to socialize wearing masks, get together in physically distanced small groups, use social media or the telephone to connect with those we find supportive or who we believe may be vulnerable. If we are feeling optimistic, it is helpful to share that with the people we are close to as well as strangers we may interact with briefly. If we are struggling, it is healthy to tell someone who will listen or to reach out to someone through a crisis line. If we or someone we know has a mental health or substance use treatment need, resources are available if we ask. Together, we will get through these trying times. 

  • If you are in crisis, you can call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 24 hours a day, seven days a week, at 800-273-8255. Press 1 for the Veterans Helpline.
  • You could also get help by texting “HEAL” to the Crisis Text Line at 741741 or contacting Lifeline Crisis Chat.
  • If you’re under 21, you can call Teen Link at 866-TEENLINK (866-833-6546) and ask to talk to a peer. The phone line is open 6 p.m.– 10 p.m. and chat is available 6 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. daily.
