When It Builds Up, Talk It Out

Parents who wish to access supports are invited to call 833-258-5011 and speak with trained professionals who will listen and speak with them about their concerns and, if additional help is needed, refer them to responsive services. They can also utilize their phones to visit www.talkitoutct.com and click on the link to be connected to the same caring professionals.

The "Talk It Out Line" is available Monday through Friday from 8 am to 8 pm and on weekends from 1 pm to 8 pm and has both English and Spanish capacity.

Yale Child Study Center & Scholastic Collaborative

In partnership with the Yale Child Study Center, Scholastic has created a free downloadable resource First Aid for Feelings, for families and children intended to help them cope with stress and anxiety created by this crisis.  It is available in English and Spanish and appropriate for Pre K-5 kids.  This resource will also be added to the Free Scholastic Learn at Home website.
