Government Offers Relief for Those in Financial Pain

governmentWell, sounds good, right? Too bad it is just a website fuill of advice on how to survive the financial crisis 🙂

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration said on Tuesday that it created a website called The “Getting Through Tough Economic Times” guide at which wants to help people identify any serious health concerns related to financial worries, develop coping skills and find help. The site has six sections:

* Possible health risks
* Warning signs
* Managing stress
* Getting help
* Suicide warning signs
* Other steps you can take

It seems that the U.S. government has become quite worried of the widespread of the health problems among the U.S. population:
* Depression
* Anxiety
* Compulsive Behaviors (over-eating, excessive gambling, spending, etc.)
* Substance Abuse
All these are deemed to be created by the economic crisis.

Now serious, we at think that if somebody is going bust, it is normal to be alittle bit anxious. Even the psychologists have studied the issues decades ago and discovered that the answer to such a crisis is often retreating in yourself and depression. But do you think that visiting a relief web site could help?

What is interesting though is that the site acts as a portal for your various government problem solvers. If you want financial advice, the site has a section assisting you on specific issues, such as:
* Making Home Affordable
* Foreclosure
* Reemployment
* Financial assistance

They even post a link to the national suicide life if you have such thoughts… So what can we wish you then – that you don’t need the help offered on this site.
