Howard Center Provides Resources for Loss and Tragedy
We extend our thoughts and prayers to the family members and friends of the five Vermont teens who lost their lives in a tragic car accident on Sunday. We also extend our thoughts to the first responders and emergency personnel, the Harwood Union High School and community, and our colleagues at Washington County Mental Health who have taken a lead role in supporting the community through this tragedy.
Tragic events can have an impact on our own health and wellbeing, even when we do not have a close personal connection. If you find yourself in need of support, Howard Center’s crisis teams are available 24/7/365. Mobile Crisis for adults at: 802-488-6400 and First Call for children and families at: 802-488-7777.
Here’s a list of additional resources to help with grief, loss, and tragedy:
