CORTLANDT COALITION COUNSELING RESOURCES
During this time of distance learning our schools’ Student Assistance Counselors are available to provide mental health support, not only to the students in their schools but to the parents, graduates, and other community members who may benefit from support. Student Assistance Counselors work in schools primarily providing substance abuse prevention activities, resources, and counseling to students. Each counselor has extensive training and holds a master’s degree and license or permit in either Social Work or Mental Health Counseling. If you or someone you know needs support, or resources on how to get more help please feel free to contact one of the Student Assistance Counselors Monday through Friday by email and they can schedule a confidential phone call or virtual telepractice session:

Raising Teens recently became even more challenging, and K.N.O.W. 2 Prevent, the Knowledge Network of Westchester, is here to help.
K.N.O.W. 2 Prevent is a collaboration of Westchester County organizations working together to empower parents with the essential tools to raise resilient and confident children, help strengthen relationships, and reduce risky behaviors. With the inability to host live speaker presentations in our individual schools and communities, the group was formed to offer FREE monthly virtual presentations by nationally-recognized experts. Speakers will focus on issues relevant to parents now and be a resource to ALL Westchester families so that we can learn together.
The collaboration is led by:
- Cortlandt Community Coalition
- Dobbs Ferry Youth Services Coalition
- The WAY—Village of Hastings-on-Hudson
- Irvington About Safe Kids—Community Advisory Board
- Mount Kisco Partners in Prevention
- Ossining Communities That Care
- Somers Partners in Prevention
And with support from Ardsley SAYF Coalition, Blind Brook Community Coalition, Bedford/Lewisboro/Pound Ridge Drug Abuse Prevention Council, Scarsdale Drug & Alcohol Task Force, Westchester Coalition and Student Assistance Services.
