Connecticut has launched a new “Talk It Out” hotline for families in effort to relieve some of the stress of caring for children during this pandemic: Parents and caretakers in search of help with the stress and increased needs resulting from caring for their children during the COVID-19 crisis are invited to call the state’s new “Talk It Out” hotline to receive assistance. An initiative of the Connecticut Department of Children and Families, the hotline provides support from trained professionals who will listen and speak with callers about their concerns and, if additional help is needed, refer them to responsive services. Parents and caretakers are invited to call 1-833-258-5011 or visit www.talkitoutct.com. The “Talk It Out” hotline is available Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., and on weekends from 1:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and has both English and Spanish speaking operators.
