Wellness Resources

It can be difficult to know what your teen is feeling, and many times they are reluctant to talk to us as parents. It's important that all teens know about 1-800-273-TALK, a 24-7 hotline where they can reach out anonymously.

The Contra Costa Crisis Center is a first-line resource where you will find support in many areas. They are always available via voice (simply dial 211) or text (text HOPE to 20121). Check out their website at www.crisis-center.org

At school, your child can find help by going to the new on-campus Wellness Centerlocated behind College & Career in the administration building. All check-ins are confidential.

For local mental health support, visit the NAMI Contra Costa webpage: www.namicontracosta.org

To find a therapist, consult your health insurance, and/or use Psychology Today's Find-a-Therapist tool: psychologytoday.com
