The Mental Health Association (MHA) has recently launched a Text Line service to provide support, information and resources to individuals, in particular kids, teens, and young adults, who might be more comfortable reaching out via text on a cell phone, rather than speaking to someone in person or calling MHA’s Hotline. The Text Line service is currently available Mondays – Thursday, 4pm -9pm by calling 301-738-2255. “MHA Text Line 2016” is (301)738-2255.
The Montgomery County Interagency Coalition of Adolescent Pregnancy (ICAP) had updated the Teen Help Cards in English and Spanish. The 2016 versions of these documents are available at http://www.montgomeryschoolsmd.org/curriculum/health/resources/
