For most of us, the 5th Anniversary of 9/11 will be a time to stop for a moment and reflect on how our world and sense of security has changed. Some of us, though, may still be having difficulty managing our emotions about the events of 9/11 and the current state of the world. Some people may be experiencing feelings of disbelief, fear and anxiety about the future, irritability, sadness and powerlessness; others may experience headaches or stomach problems, difficulty sleeping, or excessive use of alcohol or drugs. If you are experiencing difficulties like these, it is important to remember that you are not alone. NJ MentalHealthCares, the stateâ€™s mental health helpline funded by the NJ Division of Mental Health Services and provided by the Mental Health Association in New Jersey, is available to help you cope. Although not a crisis hotline, NJ MentalHealthCares is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 1-866-202-HELP (4357). A TTY line, 1-877-294-4356, is available for people with hearing impairment and we also have the capacity to answer calls in Spanish and other languages. The service has a website, www.njmentalhealthcares.org, where the public can search an up-to-date data base of services, or e-mail requests for assistance to helpline staff. If you are unsure whether you or a loved one needs help, please call NJ Mental Health Cares. Trained staff is available to listen and help.
