Crisis Lines

A crisis line is a service that provides free, confidential support and resources for people in emotional distress. The service is provided by a trained crisis counselor on the phone and in some cases by text and/or chat. You can call or text for help with someone you’re worried about or for yourself. In addition to the resources listed below, some states have their own crisis lines with phone, text, and/or chat services.

COVID-19 Message from the counselor

Dear Brook Knoll Students and Parents,

Many things may feel overwhelming at this time, but together we will get through this. Our school and health officials are being especially careful to make sure as few people as possible get sick. While school is closed for preventative measure to COVID-19, this website will be updated to provide support for students and families for any necessary updates.

Resources to articles and general social emotional activities/curriculum will be hyperlinked to this page when available and updated as needed.

Families will be notified of any necessary updates regarding counseling services from either SVUSD or myself. I am working on site in the Brook Knoll Office Monday-Friday 9am-3pm. Please email me in advance if you would like to speak with me on site. I will also be available via email during typical school hours.   

While I do my best to keep up communication, I cannot ensure that any particular email will be read and responded to within any particular period of time. Email is NOT appropriate for urgent or emergency situations. In case of emergency or crisis, please call 911.

My priority is for you all to be well during this time, I will continue to be here for you as a resource.


Ryan Navaroli (Mr. Ryan)
