COVID Counseling Services

Parents and students,
We know that these are unusual times that we are in with school closures and dealing with the
Coronavirus. Many students and parents may be anxious and concerned and just need to talk. We
just wanted to make you aware that our school counselors are available by email and will be glad to
talk with you and/or child by phone if they need to talk to a counselor. There are a couple of ways
that your child can connect with a counselor from 8:00am-3:00pm. The easiest way to connect with
your school counselor is to email your child's counselor. If you have a student in JDES, JDMS, or
JDHS, your child can login into their JD Launchpad and click on the link to talk with a counselor.
Counselors at their school are notified and will respond. You may also call 912-375-6700 and
request to talk with a counselor and the operator will have a counselor call you back.
If you or your child has a mental health crisis or emergency, then you can always call 911 or go to
the hospital emergency room. We have also included some local mental health resources in this post
and their contact info. Some of these mental health resources offer telehealth counseling.
