Good News! BP Spill Money Used For Stress Line

Hey, how else are all the little tofu eating grasshopers going to pick up their self esteem?

A toll-free helpline has been set up for people who need help from behavioral healthcare professionals in the wake of the BP oil spill.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has set up the oil spill distress line, using BP funds. The number to call is: 1-800-985-5990.

HHS says callers will be linked to a crisis center.

HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said in Wednesday’s announcement that people on the Gulf Coast are feeling stress and that “if behavioral health conditions are left untreated, we can expect that the situations these individuals and their families are living in will worsen.”

Or, maybe we could use the $20 billion to get people back to work in the effected regions of the Gulf Coast, and use that money for those who have been unable to make a living. I’d love to tell you what the money is being spent on, but, after 20 minutes of searching, I am unable to find any website that tells where the money is going.

And, yes, I’m sure it can be a bit depressing. Just seems to be a silly way to spend the money, especially when we do not know where the rest is going.

    Let me get this straight. They are going to use some of that blackmail money to setup a call center, to forward calls to another call center that the people could have called to begin with because that number is in their phone books and probably has been for decades and is paid for out of their tax dollars!?!?!?!?

    what am i missing here??
