We are working to bring School Safezones to all middle and high schools in Pitt County, and eventually all middle and high schools in Eastern Carolina. This is a place where kids can come and talk to teachers who have been trained from resources for MHSA support.
Teachers can refer for treatment, help a student see from a different perspective, or give them materials and tools to help them through the situation. These safezones are designed for anyone and any age student. They're designed to be all inclusive and lend a listening ear to any in need. The student might be having issues with bullying, home life, in need of support, stress and sadness, LGBTQ, or just general life questions.
