Crisis Line

What can you do if you are concerned with your child’s mental health?

  • Consult with your child’s doctor or pediatrician. Describe what concerns you and ask for recommendations. They may provide a referral for a Mental Health Professional. 

    Contact key people at your child’s school. Who should you reach out to? The School Counselor is a great resource to start if you aren’t sure.  Teachers can also provide insight such as changes or concerns in your child’s behavior. Ask: Are they noticing similar concerns? 

    Crisis help lines are available:

    If you or your child are in immediate danger, please call 911. 

    Remember: You are not alone!  Reach out for help.
