Schools and Religious Organizations

Our local schools and many religious organizations have trained staff to help with behavioral health needs, and they already know your child. In high school, talk to your child’s counselor or school resource officer. In middle school or elementary school, ask for the principal. At your place of worship, talk to your pastor, rabbi, or youth leader.

Text-a-Tip

Secure and anonymous help from a trained counselor 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, directly from your phone. Use the “Lake County Help” app or text 224HELP at 844-823-5323. All text messages are secure and anonymous so teens can communicate on their own or through a friend without fear. Visit CommunityTheAntiDrug.org/help for more information.
