WHAT WE ARE A resource for guidance and advice to deal with traumatic events that could affect students’ and young people’s emotional health in a school, church, youth organization, or other setting.
WHAT WE ARE NOT
We are not a crisis hotline. This is neither intended as counseling for individuals nor a replacement for professional services that may be needed, including counseling for groups.
School counselors (administrators), church leaders and youth leaders can find themselves unsure of the actions that should or should not be taken in today’s world of devastating events that sometimes happen in our schools, churches or youth organizations. These tragic events can range from a suicide or attempt to auto related injuries, death, and school violence.
CST is a free community service offered by The Jason Foundation and Acadia Healthcare. Connection to a clinical advisor typically occurs within 24 hours of contacting the Team; however, weekends or holidays can delay the response to the first working day following the holiday or weekend.
