CCYSB provides an emergency assessment service for children who pose a risk for suicide or self-injury. Referrals are accepted exclusively from Carroll County Public Schools during school hours; 7:30am to 4:00pm. Guidance counselors, administrators, or teachers may access through the CCPS guidance administrator, Judy Klinger. A Master’s level therapist is available to provide telephone consultation to the school and/or to schedule an interview with the child and parent/guardian. On-call therapists provide families with a written contract with recommendations and safety plan. If hospitalization is indicated, a coordinated plan for possible admission to Carroll Hospital Center is provided. Suicide and Self-Injury assessments are offered only to students with an accompanying adult.
