Help is available if you need it

LISBON — If you’re feeling stressed or nervous during these days, you’re not alone. Uncertainty and the sense of not being safe — not to mention physical distancing, round-the-clock news and empty grocery shelves — are stressful. What you’re feeling is common around the world. ,

If you or someone you care about feels overwhelmed with emotions like sadness, depression or anxiety, or like you want to harm yourself, please talk to someone.
