Caring for Yourself and OthersLegalFinanceCrisisAdversityLearn More
 

 It is normal to experience change in our lives.  Even though we may expect normal change, it can still create stress.  Sometimes our expectations about the results of change are unrealistic. Unexpected changes also impact families with tragic loss.  Death or disabling injury or illness, divorce, and job loss can turn life upside down.  Readjustment can be slow and painful.  We need to be sure to care for ourselves and others during these stressful situations.

 To assist you, Iowa Concern has stress counselors that can talk with you over the phone or in one-on-one Live Chat.  You can also check out the Frequently Asked Questions.  Referrals for mental health counseling can also be accessed through Iowa Concern.
