Free Bilingual Help Line Available to Those Affected by Hurricane Irma
Florida Blue, in partnership with New Directions Behavioral Health, is offering emotional support to individuals and loved ones affected by Hurricane Irma. The companies are providing community access to specially trained behavioral health counselors via a 24-hour, toll-free help line: 800-843-6514.
Licensed clinicians are available to speak to anyone in Florida free of charge. They can help people with feelings of stress, anxiety, trauma and grief due to the damaging effects of the storm. The emotional support is offered to English-speaking and Spanish-speaking individuals, and does not require insurance. Callers may also receive referrals to community resources to help them with emergency services (shelter, clothing, food, financial, etc.).
