From West Virginia MetroNews: “Operators of several 24-hour help lines in West Virginia have now created a specific line to help West Virginians who are dealing with increased anxiety brought on by all of the factors involving Covid 19. First Choice Services has unveiled what it calls ‘Help 304, West Virginia’s Emotional Strength Line’ . . .
‘There’s a real big need for this in West Virginia. Studies have shown anxiety has gone up tremendously in the United States and West Virginia already was ranked as one of the least mentally healthy states where people were suffering from a lot of anxiety and depression. This pandemic has certainly worsened that,’ [said Sheila Moran with First Choice Services].”
