Throughout middle school development, students are expereincing a lot of changes. It is not uncommon for peer groups to change, for social conflict to arise, or for symptoms of stress and anxiety to manifest. Many of these developmental challenges and stressors can be supported by coordination with the school, pediatricians or other community resources.
The school support team is here to serve as a resource during school hours; however, in the event of an emergency after school or on weekends we have provided the following resources within our community to assist you in accessing emergency services when urgen help is needed:
East Bay Center 24 hour crisis line: 401-246-0700
911- This number is dedicated for psychiatric as well as medical emergencies.
This is the fastest and easiest way to get information when you need it. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
One call gives you access to resources across your community, whether you need to get help - for you, for a family member or for a friend - or want to help. No more wrong numbers, no more wasted time trying to find the right person to call.
Someone at 2-1-1 will help connect you to the services or information you need. Confidentially, for free, in your language.
