The coronavirus crisis has made our lives very stressful. We understand that you might be feeling stressed, depressed, or anxious. If you need someone to talk to, and you are a student of The Literacy Center, we can make you a confidential appointment to speak with our Licensed Clinical Social Worker, a trained mental health professional, who will help you. Please contact Amanda Blount, Kristen Williams, or Jenn Orellana to make an appointment with the Counselor: 508-399-1026.

Please note, if you feel you are having a mental health emergency or are considering harming yourself or another person, please call 9-1-1 or go directly to the nearest Emergency Room (Sturdy Hospital, 211 Park St, Attleboro).
