A Message to the Mitchell Scholar Community Following the Events in Lewiston on Oct. 25, 2023

Dear Mitchell Scholars and Mitchell Scholar Alumni,

We at the Mitchell Institute are thinking of you as we learn more about the difficult news coming from Lewiston. We encourage you to carefully follow the communications provided by your school and to use the resources available to you on your campus or in your area. If you need assistance with determining where to go for help with your needs, we are here to listen to you, to support you, and to help put you in touch with resources available to you.

We also encourage you to consider these statewide resources:

  • Crisis Line: Dial 988
  • Warm Line (a good first step in providing practical, accurate information about resources): Dial 1-866-771-9276
  • Teen Text Support Line (for people 13 to 23 years old and staffed by trained support specialists who are 18 to 24 years old): Text 207-515-8398

Please take care of yourself and each other. We hope you know that you are part of a caring, supportive community that is always here for you. If you need to connect with us, please email the staff member you wish to reach at the email address listed at the bottom of our website homepage: mitchellinstitute.org/

Warmly, Your Friends at the Mitchell Institute
