Psychological damage from lost jobs may still be months away

Job losses are mounting locally, but it may be months before the worst is felt from a mental standpoint. William Nick, Counseling Associates of Door County Director, says that while a job loss can be shocking for the psyche, it is often harder for people to deal with missing out on the recovery when life returns to normal for others. It is that time period where Nick thinks psychologists will be needed most.


Jobs tend to become tied to an individual’s self-worth. Losing that is an obstacle that one could potentially be facing without the safety net of employer-provided health insurance. There are resources for those who are trying to cope with depression and its crippling side effects.
