Review the North Shore/Cape Ann Community Resource Manual 2018 and choose an agency or organization that provides either crisis intervention or prevention services to the residents in your community (the town or city where you live). Reminder: You may NOT use a crisis hotline such as The Good Samaritans (Suicide hotline), HAWC (domestic violence hotline), or hotlines for any one of the many rape crisis centers in the area…hotlines are set up and staffed for emergency calls, not to provide information to students in a crisis intervention class. If you choose an agency with a hotline service, you may NOT call the hotline . If you choose a police or fire agency or any other emergency service agency, you MUST NOT call their emergency line!
