Free download: Coping through an Emotional Crisis

by Sofia Mendoza, LCSW

Coping through an emotional crisis can be incredibly tough. Here are some do’s and don’ts on coping that can help you get through it. Please note that these are ‘band-aid’ and temporary skills that one can use to get through the most difficult parts of a crisis. You are urged to seek professional or medical help if the coping attempts don’t work, the situation doesn’t subside, or the crisis gets worse. Feel free to share this or download the pdf for free here.

If you find yourself in a medical emergency where you or a loved one is a danger to themselves or others, you are strongly urged to call 9-1-1 or go to your nearest emergency room. The National Suicide Hotline number is: 1-800-273-TALK (8255). In Los Angeles County, you can also call the Department of Mental Health’s Psychiatric Mobile Response Team – Access Hotline at 1-800-854-7771.
