If you have social/emotional concerns that need immediate assistance, you are encouraged to use the 24-hour Geauga County Copeline: (888) 285-5665.  Students can also text 4HOPE to 741741 if they are in crisis (this is a free, 24/7 text line). You are also welcome to refer to our list of Counseling Resources if necessary.

 

OhioMHAS has started the COVID CareLine.  The CareLine is a toll-free number and emotional support call service staffed by Behavioral health professionals.  The CareLine operates from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., 7 days/week. They will offer confidential support in times of personal crisis when individuals may be struggling to cope with current challenges in their lives. After 8 p.m., the CareLine will forward to the National Suicide Prevention Helpline, allowing those calling to have access to someone 24 hours/day.
