NEW CRISIS TEXT LINE
New Crisis Text Line for Students The Tennessee Suicide Prevention Network (TSPN) and Crisis Text Line, a free, 24/7 text-messaging support line for people in crisis, recently announced the launch of a partnership bringing crisis support to anyone in the state. People in Tennessee can text “TN” to 741-741 to connect with a crisis counselor.   Suicide is the second-leading cause of death among youth and young adults ages 15-24 in Tennessee and for the United States at large. According to the Tennessee Department of Health, there were 945 recorded suicide deaths in our state in 2014. Many teens and young adults use their phones for texting instead of talking, so the Crisis Text Line offers an alternative means of contact for people who might not reach out for help otherwise.   Crisis Text Line provides access to a trained crisis counselor who can provide immediate support and referrals not just for suicidal thoughts, but also for anxiety, depression, child and domestic abuse, substance abuse, eating disorders, human trafficking, and beyond. More information about the Crisis Text Line is available via their website. Non-emergency information about suicide and other crisis resources are available on the TSPN website
ACT Prep Course:
Ms. Ryckeley offers ACT classes for $450.  The classes are held four Sundays before an ACT testing date.  Your student can take the classes as many times as they would like after the one-time fee is paid.  Ms. Ryckeley would like to know who is interested in attending so she has the correct number of books available on the first class day and welcomes any questions you may have.  
The students bring their check (made out to College Prep Coach), their calculator, and a pencil.
The classes for the October test are September 28, October 5, October 12, and October 19 from 2-4 at her home.
Students may return to her classes to refresh and practice for future tests for free. Students sometimes take the ACT 2 or 3 times.
