Florida Blue, in partnership with New Directions Behavioral Health, is offering a free grief counseling hotline to anyone in need of emotional support following the tragedy in Sebring this week. The hotline is open 24-hours a day to the entire community at no cost and will connect callers with a trained, caring professional who can provide assistance.

“When something like this happens close to home, it can bring up a range of emotions such as anger, guilt, anguish, or even hopelessness. Everyone processes tragedy in their own way, and we want to offer a resource to the Highlands County community to help address their feelings after this tragedy,” said David Pizzo, Florida Blue Market President, West Florida.

The 24-hour, toll-free helpline is available by calling 1-833-848-1762, and offers caring professionals trained to listen and offer support specific to what residents are going through. It’s free regardless of whether callers have insurance and will be available as long as needed.
