As we move into week 3 of our closure I just want to remind everyone that School Social Workers are still available to students. All a student would need to do is send an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we can chat via phone or Google Hangout. This applies to any student at DHS whether you have previously seen a social worker or not. Think of us as a resource for any question you may have also. We are here to help.
Please note resources are different than what is listed at the bottom of th site since this is an Australian site. A resource if you are in crisis is: https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/talk-to-someone-now/https://au.reachout.com/articles/10-ways-to-take-care-of-yourself-during-coronavirus Our support hotline for the district is: 313-827-8500. If you need something please reach out to the above resources or to me.
