Ever since the COVID-19 pandemic started, there has been a spike in the number of children, teens, and adults that have reported mental health concerns. Even before then, suicide rates were climbing high. 
 
Remember, you are NOT alone, and there are resources out there to help you get through any difficult times in your life. 

Below, you will find crisis support hotlines and chat services. These services are completely free to use. Please do not use these services as replacements of professional mental health assistance. These services are not meant to diagnose or treat potential mental health issues. Instead, these services are here to help you to talk to an on-call counselor, peer support specialist, or representative. 

The following services are not staffed by or operated by Power Scholars Online Tutoring. They are government, state, and national organizations, including private-run agencies. It is important to note that these sites are not connected with our privacy policies or terms and conditions and are recommended resources.
