Dear North Shore Child & Family Guidance Center Community,

Olivia’s first visit to the E.R. for self-harm and suicidal thoughts came last fall, when she was just 14 years old. But instead of admitting her, the hospital referred her to North Shore Child & Family Guidance Center.

We are dedicated to providing lifesaving services during this difficult time. Therefore, while our physical doors are closed, our clinical team is seamlessly maintaining its lifesaving work through telephone and video conference sessions.

You can reach us via email at or call (516) 626-1971 ext. 338, or for Spanish, (516) 626-1971, ext. 364.

If you are experiencing an emergency situation, please call 911 or go to your local emergency room. You can also call the Long Island Crisis Center at (516) 679-1111.

We are so grateful to all the donors who support our work year-round. Now more than ever, we need your help. Please consider donating to the Guidance Center so we can continue to serve the children and families of our community. Thank you so much, and we wish you good health.
