Crisis Resources from MaineHealth:
The MaineHealth care team is doing everything possible to provide the important services needed in our communities during this particularly challenging time. For the most current information about any changes to MaineHealth locations due to the events in Lewiston, please visit MaineHealth.org/updates. Families with children may also find our guidance about talking to children about tragic events helpful in navigating these difficult conversations.
When violence of this scale hits so close to home, it is understandable to be deeply upset. If you or anyone you know is in crisis, please call 9-8-8 for the Suicide & Crisis Lifeline or the Maine Crisis Line at 1-888-568-1112.
Additionally, NCRF has some excellent handouts and links for therapists to use. This link has a lot of friendly print materials for families and parents too https://www.ncfr.org/resources/resource-collections/how-talk-children-about-tragedies?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI-vnLs-GTggMVzkdyCh0TNQUcEAAYASAAEgIxdPD_BwE
