TCAPS Offering Virtual Counseling Services To Students/Families

By Beth Milligan | March 19, 2020

Traverse City Area Public Schools (TCAPS) has announced it will provide virtual counseling services to students or families requiring assistance.

"Uncertainty can cause a sense of vulnerability, which can lead to increased stress and anxiety," TCAPS said in a statement. "If a student needs to talk to one of the district’s social workers or counselors during the state-mandated K-12 school closures, parents/guardians are asked to complete this form. Certified staff will reach out within 24 hours via a phone call or a Google hangout (through an email invite)."

Additional resources to support social and emotional health include:
- 24 hour mental health crisis line: 1-833-295-0616 (Northern Lakes Community Mental Health-FAST) - Crisis counselor text line (24/7, national service): text HOME to 741741
- National Suicide Prevention Hotline: 1-800-273-8255
- OK2SAY: https://www.michigan.gov/ok2say/ - For medical or safety emergencies, families should continue to call 9-1-1.
