Affected residents can call 866-342-6892 for help managing stress and anxiety

Optum, a leading health services company, is offering a free emotional-support help line for people in the Midwest and South affected by the recent tornadoes.

The company's toll-free help line number, 866-342-6892, will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for as long as necessary. The service is free of charge and open to anyone. Specially trained mental health specialists from the company's OptumHealth business help people manage their stress and anxiety so they can continue to address their everyday needs. Callers may also receive referrals to community resources to help them with specific concerns, including financial and legal matters.

In addition, through a $500,000 annual commitment, Optum participates in the Annual Disaster Giving Program of the American Red Cross, which is offering shelter, food, emotional support and other assistance to people in the affected communities.

Along with the toll-free help line, emotional support resources and information are available online in English at www.liveandworkwell.com and Spanish at www.mentesana-cuerposano.com.

The Red Cross is a charitable organization -- not a government agency -- and depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.
