At the Illinois State Board of Education, our number one priority is you—the student! We recognize that many of you have to deal with some pretty heavy issues on top of your education. If you or a friend are struggling, we encourage you to reach out to a trusted adult like your school counselor, social worker, a teacher, or an administrator. There are also hotlines available, such as the Crisis Text Line, that can help you anonymously. Check out the topics listed below for more resources that can help with limited challenges.
