Mental Health & Well Being

A state of well-being in which an individual realizes their own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and is able to contribute to their community.
The state of being comfortable, healthy, or happy
The Guide Relief Program and our community of supporters are just as invested in the mental health and well-being of our guides as we are in their physical health.
Our goal is simple: to start the conversation about mental health. We want to help our members understand that it is okay to not feel like yourself and to speak with someone about it. That someone could simply be a friend whom you love and trust, but there may come a time when your friend is out of their depth, and you need to speak with a professional. Not unlike a fishing guide, a mental health professional can help you navigate whatever mental health issues you may be experiencing.
The Guide Relief Program offers you information and resources to access mental health services – from a phone conversation with a professional to personal, one-on-one services.
