Crisis and Counseling Resources for Families
During this time of quarantine, families and students may experience added stress. Additionally, many people are unable to interact with therapy providers. Here is a list of resources for use if your child is in crisis. Examples of crisis include threats, or acts of self-harm, suicidal thoughts, or attempt, threats/actions that harm others, or concerning changes in behavior. Our counselor Mrs. Duncan can provide assist and more information. Her office hours are 8:00 am – 3:30 pm, and her email is Yvonne_Duncan@elwyn.org
