August 17, Miller Hearing Supports for Families

Dear Oxford Schools Families,

As the Miller Hearing continues tomorrow, our district partners at All for Oxford Resiliency Center have provided us with a list of resources that are available for anyone needing support. The ongoing mental and emotional health of our school community is very important for all of us in our healing journey.

We are reminded by trauma therapists that it will be normal for many of us to feel activated from learning new information, either immediately or even as a few days pass and that information begins to set in. They have let us know it is okay to come up with a plan to surround ourselves with people that will support us in feeling safe and calm.  It is okay to turn off the news or disconnect from media to engage in activities that will allow our nervous systems to feel more relaxed. It is okay to focus on our needs and what we can control.

The services below are available for anyone who may need them:

  • Common Ground call 1-800-231-1127 for free and confidential counseling, information, and referrals
  • Go to the Common Ground Crisis Center, open 24/7, in person located at 1200 N. Telegraph Road. Building 32E in Pontiac
  • Call the suicide and crisis lifeline at 988
