Kids in Crisis TeenTalk pilot program coming to NHS

The Newtown Board of Education has approved a pilot program for the high school.  A Kids in Crisis TeenTalk program costs $85,000, but will be prorated since the school year is already underway.  Funding for the pilot program was secured through the Newtown Parent Connection.  Kids in Crisis will hire a counselor, with input from the school district, to direct students to specialists and support systems outside of the school.  Its TeenTalk program features specially-trained counselors to identify and help students navigate difficult personal, family, and school-related issues. They would bolster school staff by providing individual, group, and family counseling.
