The Turning Point Foundation proudly announced the establishment of its Wellness Line program to support the mental health of all those in need in Ventura County.
Anyone can call the Wellness Line at (805) 653-5045 to speak with trained staff who can offer support, coping strategies and other tools to support the well-being of the caller. Turning Point’s partnership with social services agencies and providers throughout the county made this program possible.
The Wellness Line call hours are from Monday to Saturday, from 9 am to 8 pm.
“For several months, we have all been subjected to the physical, economic, and emotional consequences of COVID-19.” said Jason Meek, Executive Director of the Turning Point Foundation. “It is vital that we are accessible and employ the necessary resources to our community in a manner that has the greatest impact to the unique needs of each individual.”
The COVID-19 pandemic has taken a severe toll on Ventura County. The sustained hardship of constant stay-at-home mandates, social isolation, and disruption of daily life has worn on the mental health on many communities. This holiday season, with the added stress from the inability to safely gather and celebrate with loved ones, will be especially difficult. Turning Point has redoubled its efforts to support Ventura County’s most vulnerable, including the homeless and veterans, in the wake of this pandemic.
The Turning Point Foundation improves Ventura County communities by helping those facing mental illness remain or become functioning, integral community members.
