From time to time you are all faced with difficult circumstances as part of growing up. I know that you have been told a gazillion times that if you have a problem, you need to talk to an adult about it…talk to your parents, find a teacher, go see Mr. Erwin, go see Nurse Harper, or come see me. However, I also understand that sometimes it is not that easy, and it can be uncomfortable to talk to someone you know about personal stuff. Therefore, I have found several websites and a couple of teen hotlines where you can get information or contact someone that can help you and can answer your questions…anonymously. No one has to know that you are having problems, and the help is free! Please keep this list someplace where you can find it if you need it, and use it if you are dealing with issues and don’t know what to do. But, always remember that you have people here at school that would be glad to help you, and also remember that you are never alone. I promise that there are others who are dealing with the same sorts of problems that you are or they have dealt with them in the past.
