This month a bookseller struggling with depression and anxiety was among the people you helped.
This year, thanks to your generosity, that safety net is even stronger. Now Binc’s program managers can offer the new Mental Health Wellness program, in addition to financial assistance.
The Book Industry Charitable (Binc) Foundation announces a new Mental Health Wellness program to provide short term support to any employee or owner of U.S. bookstores and comic shops.
A report from the American Psychological Association showed that the pandemic has heightened the impact of chronic prolonged stress for people from all walks of life, and is especially linked to anxiety, depression, anger, sleep difficulties, eating disorders. You know that if you read about it in the news, then Binc is there for employees and owners of bookstores and comic shops who are experiencing it.
