The meeting focuses on “Post-Election Trauma Crisis: Psychological Impacts of the Election and Increased Stressors, Fears, Depression and Suicides,” and looking into the broader realities and impacts on people, families and communities. This is a very serious topic and challenge we're not paying enough attention to and we will be focusing more in-depth on it. Following the meeting will be our Holiday Luncheon and all are invited to join us.
The US Presidential Election has brought on deep psychological, societal and physical impacts that have been seen, heard and felt by many for the past six months of the race leading up to the day of election. The day of election came and the results have hit many people with a hard reality which many can’t handle and is an increasing concern in many ways as the psychological impacts of fear threatens the lives and well-being of many people. We have been seeing real fear creating all kinds of behaviors in people affected by it, some of which have been fatal as people ended their lives in despair from the results and who won. Some people have become so fearful and nervous about what is coming and what will happen from this new administration they aren't coping well and have slipped into a state of distress and despair. Many lives were impacted by the race, and now that it is over, many lives changed will forever be changed, many relationships, marriages and friendships broken, in chaos and shattered from conflicts of choice of candidates, many victims of trauma have been retraumatization and triggered in ways they don't even understand how to deal with. Some people are just making their way through the transition and trying to figure out where they stand in all that is happening and will change. This is a conversation we have been actively engaged in months before the day of election as we saw how much of an impact the race for the presidency had on people and how it changed them. It was a very psychological election and clearly, the impacts are not simple nor should not be taken lightly.
There are many organizations and agencies who do not provide services or support for people struggling with depression, suicide ideations, attempt survivors and loss survivors, and we are going to expand on mental and behavioral health services by sharing, networking and training about emotional wellness and suicide response, prevention and postvention. If you are a human/health services provider, crisis responder, grief counselor, caregiver, mental health professional, social worker, guidance counselor, clergy leader, educator or law enforcement that works with people who are abused, substance abusers, struggling, homeless, unemployed, suicidal or suffered loss from suicide or violence please join us. Together, with early intervention and effective support we can proactively save more lives from human suffering, crisis, distress and despair. Join us to collaborate, plan and strategize on 24/7s Emotional Crisis Response, awareness, training, prevention, intervention and postvention across NYC.
Please register if intending to attend so we can know how many people are coming and have appropriate accommodations. Contact us for inquiries at Ask@suicidecouncil.org and/or (917) 651-1889. We look forward to having you with us.
