    Student Resources - Text-a-Tip

    Text-A-Tip is a 24/7 anonymous text-communication system for youth needing immediate mental health assistance for themselves or a friend. Our 5th-8th grade students can send a message through Text-A-Tip and receive an immediate response from a local professional counselor while remaining completely anonymous. Anyone who texts "D36Help" to 1-844-823-5323 will receive a text response within 3 minutes from a counselor. This resource is provided by LEAD (Linking Efforts Against Drugs), a non-profit organization based in Lake Forest, who has already done work in our school and community over the past few years. LEAD works in schools all over the country, including nearly every school on the North Shore.
