Elbert County Middle School
Find It Fast
Mary Beth WaggonerDear Parents and Students,
The counseling office at Elbert County Middle School wanted to reach out and let you know that we are available during this time if you need support. For the parents, we have attached an article about how to organize the day while we have to be at home. Structuring our time can be an effective way to combat stress and help ourselves feel a sense of normalcy in an abnormal time.
If you or a loved one are experiencing a mental health crisis, we have linked a brochure with information about counseling resources within Elbert County and surrounding communities for mental health and/or other needs. If you or someone you know is in need of immediate mental health services please contact the Georgia Crisis and Access Line at (800)715-4225 or in the case of an emergency dial 911. GCAL is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year to help you or someone you care for in a crisis. Additionally, Georgia’s youth can now access GCAL’s services via text and chat through a new app called My GCAL. Developed by Behavioral Health Link, the app will allow youth to call, text, or chat with GCAL 24/7/365. Help is in your pocket–just a click away. The caring professionals of GCAL are ready to help, and users can choose how they want to reach out.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us using the email addresses or Google numbers below and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Both counselors will have access to email and our Google Voice platform for text messages or calls during normal school hours. Students, please check your email regularly as we may be contacting you to check-in.
