Personal Support Resources
The vision of Virtual Loudoun is to cultivate quality, flexible, self-paced, virtual learning.
Being a teenager is not easy. If you find yourself feeling overwhelmed or struggling, it is important to seek help. You may find some useful tools here in the LCPS Virtual Calming Room. It may also be important for you to actively reach out to someone for help. Talk to an adult you can trust … a parent, a school counselor, a teacher, a coach, a family friend. Tell someone you need help. If you are an LCPS student, check out the resources available to you through the School Counseling Department at your high school:
If you notice one of your friends is having a difficult time, speak up! Let your friend know you care about them and help them connect with someone to talk about what is going on.
If you or someone you know is experiencing a crisis and in need of immediate support, you can access emergency help in these ways:
