Suicide & Crisis Prevention

Even when school is not in session, the Central Cambria School District continues to care about our student’s well-being.  Therefore, we want to provide you with some resources that you can access while the district administration and counselors are not available. 

 

  • WARNING SIGNS OF BULLYING - Often times, students who are being bullied display key warning signs.  Not all children who are being bullied will seek out help; therefore, one of the first steps in helping a student who is being bullied is being able to recognize the warning signs.  Please visit: https://www. stopbullying.gov/at-risk/ warning-signs/index.html to read about the warning signs of bullying. 
  • CRISIS - If you or someone you know is in crisis and needs immediate attention, please call 911.
