    Dear Chelsea Community,

    During this time of school closure, we are committed to providing social emotional support to our students and families at Chelsea Public School through this difficult time.  Students may be struggling with being apart from peers, worry about the COVID-19, or having a difficult time with the change in their everyday schedule, and may be in need of additional social-emotional support.  Students who may be experiencing anxiety, stress, sadness, or feeling worry about the COVID-19 and would like to speak to a school social worker can send an email to:  supportforstudents@chelseaschools.com  In the email, please include your name, school, and the preferred way to contact you.   We will be monitoring the email during school hours, Monday through Friday and will respond to you within 24-72 hours.  Please reach out for support.

    If you are having a mental health emergency or in need of immediate support, please call BEST (Best Emergency Services Team) @ (1-800-981-HELP) or 911.

    Some additional 24 hour hotlines/helplines that are available include:

    Crisis Text Line:

    TEXT: HOME to 741741 (Crisis counselor will respond via text)

    Suicide Prevention Hotline:
