Students are likely to experience strong, complex emotions. Simply shifting schedules can feel like a huge disruption in a child’s life. We amassed a few great resources to help parents and teachers support students as they acknowledge and move through confusing feelings.
These challenging times may change the way we’re providing care, but not our commitment to providing it.
We know that COVID-19 has increased stress and anxiety for everybody, and people with pre-existing mental health concerns are particularly vulnerable.
That’s why, beginning at noon on Monday, March 23rd, we will be launching a Virtual Mental Health and Substance Use Urgent Care. Therapy, psychiatry, and peer support services will be available by phone and through telemedicine, 24/7 to adults and children, regardless of insurance or ability to pay. For help, call 888-750-2266, option 2.
