Family Wellness Resources During the Summer

Have a wonderful summer everyone! Here are some wellness resources for you while the Wellness Center is closed (now through July 31).

IN CASE OF EMERGENCY:

If you have a serious and immediate concern regarding a student, yourself, or a friend, please call 9-1-1 or PAPD at 650-329-2413 and request a C.I.T. (Crisis Intervention Team) officer to assist you. 

Emergency support is also available through the following providers:

  • Santa Clara County Uplift Families First 24-hour Crisis Line: (408) 379-9085
  • Crisis Text Line:  text word “START” to 741-741 to text the suicide hotline
  • National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-8255

In addition, PAUSD has contracted with Caresolace to make it easier for you to find a local provider who is available to help. They contract with your insurance or on a sliding scale.

Last but not least, we encourage you to connect with friends and neighbors, have meaningful conversations, and support each other!

If you have any non-urgent questions, please feel free to contact the PTA Health and Wellness Chair at health-wellness@gunnpta.org.
