Other than our parents asking us to stay home when we were heading out the door to hang out with our friends, this may be the first time in our adult lives that someone has asked us to stay home. Unlike when we were teenagers and felt rebellious and questioned our parents’ judgement, this time it is different. Our Governor has asked us to stay home for a specific reason, and that is to help slow the spread of a virus that seems to have a life of its own. Now is not the time to be defiant. We must do our best to follow the instructions for our health, and that of our families and friends.

Tri-County Youth Services Bureau is also staying home to protect our children and the community. However, we are here for you. The school and office-based counselors continue to provide services to children, youth and families, via telehealth portals, either through telephone or video conference. Your counseling session is confidential, and the counselor is here to help you maintain positive mental health during this time.

If you would like more information, or if you would like to make a referral for services, contact us Monday through Friday from 9:00am to 5:00pm at (301) 259-1076.

Our 24 hour service line is (301) 645-1837. That line is open 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.

We can also be contacted at info@tcysb.org. Feel free to follow us on Facebook @tcysborg for regular updates and important information.

Stay home. Stay safe. Stay informed. We will get through this together.
