The Corona Virus is presenting many challenges for families. In addition to contacting school personnel, here are a few important resources:

    • National Suicide Hotline 1-800-273-8255

    • Comprehensive Mental Health in Independence Missouri is providing phone based services. They can be reached at 816-254-3652. Comprehensive also has a crisis hotline: 1-888-279-8188

    • If you or a loved one are experiencing suicidal thoughts, the best avenue for immediate treatment is to dial 911 or visit your local emergency room.
