A WARM LINE FOR FAMILIES IMPACTED BY A WORK DISPLACING HEALTHCARE EVENT
To cultivate a central line of support equipped with emotional and tangible resources that illuminates the mental health impact of job displacement.
Our mission is to provide thorough emotional support to those navigating the unexpected reality of a work displacing healthcare event, with groups of volunteers who offer callers compassionate listening and valuable information to local resources.
Emotional Support Warm Line & Secure Chat
Kind Souls offers secure phone and online chat sessions where individuals who have experienced a job-displacing injury or illness can connect to a Kind Soul who is available to listen and emotionally support them through their journey. Kind Souls are also available to family members and caregivers who are supporting individuals throughout their injury or illness journey.
Virtual Emotional Support Sessions
No matter what your emotional support needs may be, having a support system will keep you on the path to recovery and/or can help you in making the emotional adjustment to new circumstances. Kind Souls are available for virtual face-to-face, pre-scheduled support sessions for individuals, families, and their caregivers.
Resource Database and Navigation
Navigating illness and injury is complex, and each person has unique needs and circumstances. In some situations, healthcare delivery systems overlap. Kind Souls offers basic resource navigation and maintains a repository of state-by-state disability and resource guides to help individuals and families interface with complex healthcare and disability systems.
American Psychology Association (APA) Dictionary Definition
The verbal and nonverbal processes by which one communicates care and concern for another, offering reassurance, empathy, comfort, and acceptance. It may be a major factor contributing to the effectiveness of self-help groups, within which members both provide and receive emotional support, and to attachment, in which the caregiver provides emotional support to the child.
Kind Souls Emotional Support Definition:
A safe space where you can explore your thought processes and subsequent feelings as well as find effective solutions that promote your overall well being.
