As the coronavirus continues to force school and business closures, many in the area are feeling the strain — both emotionally and financially.

That’s why Orange County Public Schools’ Mental Health Services Department is continuing to offer its list of resources to those needing help.

On its website, OCPS has numerous links that hit on everything from crisis intervention and support to financial support resources and social emotional learning resources for families. There is even information on how to talk with your child about the coronavirus.

The department is open to take calls from parents to provide information and resources to families seeking help for mental health issues, as well. The number is (407) 317-3694 and is being manned between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. weekdays.
