Our Guiding Principles
Resources for Families and Students Dealing with Loss
The New Paltz High School Principal, counseling staff and the high school teachers have shared with students that it is normal to experience an array of feelings after a tragic incident such as the sudden loss of a classmate. It is important that the students understand that it's normal to feel angry or sad, shocked or, even frightened, and that it's very, very important to share their feelings with an adult. We have stressed that it's also important to talk with friends, but if students feel overwhelmed they need to speak with their parent(s) or another adult they can trust and who is able to help them.
If the students don't feel they are able to speak with an adult they know, or, if a parent is in need of resources to help his/her child they can call:
1-844-277-4820 which is the mobile mental health number. They are available from 1pm-11pm. Their website is accessupports.org.
Another resource is the Family of New Paltz Hot Line. The number is, 845-338-2370.They are available 24/7.
Another is 1-800-273-TALK.
Also a walk in clinic available through the Institute for Family Health in Kingston. It will be open 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday 845- 338-2562.
