Mrs. Janine Cipollone

Hello,

I am available Monday through Friday from 7:45 am -2:40 pm  , via email at: jcipollone@yonkerspublicschools.org or via phone at: (914) 376-8177.

Below are resources to help you during this uncertain time. 

 

 

 

  • The Department of Community Mental Health recognizes that this can be a stressful time for many people. The thought of having had family members exposed or being exposed to a virus yourself can create feelings of uncertainty, fear or anxiety. If you have specific health related questions there are people you can contact. 

    People under self-quarantine, or exposure to a known case, should call (866) 588-0195. The NYS Department of Health COVID-19 Hotline is (888) 364-3065. For Westchester County residents who are looking for COVID-19 Information, call 211, where contact specialists can provide assistance. 

    • If you are experiencing anxiety or stress that has begun to affect your daily life and you feel you need support, call our office at (914) 995-1900. We can provide supportive counseling and refer you to longer term services if you need it.

      In the event of a psychiatric emergency, you can call: 

    • Crisis Prevention and Response Team at (914) 925-5959 
    • National Suicide Hotline (800) 273-TALK or (800) 273-8255 
    • Or, you can always call 911 in any emergency

  • The Crisis Text Line is a 24/7 texting resource available for teens. Young people can text the number at any time and be connected with a trained crisis counselor.

     

    • Teens in crisis can text the number 741741 to begin a free, anonymous conversation with a trained counselor, who responds within five minutes
    • Research suggests that teens are more likely to disclose sensitive information via text than in speaking conversations
    • Crisis Text Line follows two standards: 1. Fight for the texter, or make the texter the number-one priority. 2. Great crisis counseling requires great crisis counselors, so they all undergo extensive training
    • The Crisis Text Line receives an average of 15,000 texts a day
    • Based on data from 5 million texts, Crisis Text Line found that depression peaks at 8 p.m., anxiety at 11 p.m., self harm at 4 a.m., and substance abuse at 5 a.m.
    • Nancy Lublin, the CEO of DoSomething.org, is also the CEO of Crisis Text Line. This means it’s run by someone who knows a lot—and cares a lot—about teens!
