Helping our teens

Social distancing can be especially difficult for teens who may be feeling cut off from their social life. They may also be sad or angry about missing milestones like graduation, sports, or prom.

It can be hard for parents or caretakers to know how to best help youth manage their emotions. Kitsap Community Foundation has created a list of resources for children, teens, and their caregivers, including a local texting line where teens in crisis can find a listening ear, resources, and safety.

Kitsap Mental Health Services also offers personalized care for young adults – and people of all ages – with staff available to help navigate stressful situations with compassionate support and resources. KMHS also operates a 24/7 toll-free crisis line at 888-910-0416 for anyone who may be suicidal or in an emotional crisis.

Staying home can feel lonely, but there is help. Let’s #BlockTheReboundKitsap.
