Media outlets are reporting that the death of Robin Williams has shed light on depression & substance abuse issues. With the untimely passing of the comedian, we want to remind you that Goodwill can help.

The apparent suicide of comedian Robin Williams has called attention to the importance of getting treatment for mental health and substance abuse issues. According to reports, Williams struggled with both substance abuse and depression for much of his life. Mental health and substance abuse treatment services are available near you. If you feel you are in a crisis, you can call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) [TTY: 1-800-799-4889], and speak to someone who can assist you in getting help.

At Goodwill, our Behavioral Health Services strive to fight the stigma related to mental illness. Goodwill believes that individuals with mental illness can live a better life by connecting with the services located in their community. PROS is a day treatment program located in Astoria. The goal is to help you improve the ability to communicate with family members and members of your community, decrease hospital stays, help you to adhere to your medical treatment, or even help you find work.

In addition to PROS, our Clubhouses provide an outlet for social interaction and employment support services. Citiview Connections Clubhouse is located in Long Island City, Queens, and Seamark Center Clubhouse is located in Brooklyn. For more information, please call (718) 361-7030 or (718) 372-0450 respectively. Our Adult Self Help program in the Bronx helps individuals with mental illness find work. For information on the services provided there, please call (718) 401-2555. Also, in a few weeks, we’ll open a Citiview Connections Clubhouse location at the Bronx. Stay tuned for more information about the exact location, phone number and services!
