Are you feeling overwhelmed, stressed, or depressed?

FHS Counselors aren't just a few steps away like they would be during a typical school year, so they wanted to give you a resource for easy access to support at any hour of any day. The Crisis Text Line will connect you anonymously to a trained Crisis Counselor. (See image below)
