 Day One RAPP is committed to providing continuous support to the school community
during school closures. Alongside our Department of Education colleagues, we are
doing our best to adapt to remote services, which includes our individual/group
counseling, prevention workshops, and peer leadership. In the case that we are unable
to provide care remotely, we will refer students and staff to appropriate resources. We
will provide a comprehensive, vetted resource guide for RAPP related services within
the next week for students, parents, and school partners.
 
The following is the latest information on Day One’s remote services for the
Relationship Abuse Prevention Program (RAPP):
 
RAPP Counseling
As the situation unfolds, our protocol and practices around providing counseling
is subject to change. For now, RAPP Coordinators can provide limited check-ins
with students who received RAPP counseling at the time of the school closures.
Check-ins with students can be conducted over Zoom (video conference), phone,
email, or text. Remote check-ins and counseling may not be appropriate for
individuals actively involved in an abusive relationship, and RAPP Coordinators
will assess and plan for safety before providing services remotely.
We can provide consultation to teachers and parents as well as assessment,
immediate safety planning and appropriate referrals to students.
 
Workshops
We are currently working on adapting our prevention workshops to online
learning platforms for remote learning. We will update you as web-based
workshops become available for Healthy Relationships, Consent and Coercion,
and Intimate Partner Violence.
 
Peer Leadership and Summer Peer Leadership Institute
We have suspended the planning, interviews and acceptance to Day One’s
Summer Peer Leadership Institute (SPLI) until April 20th and will provide updates
on SPLI at that time.
 
Peer leaders are encouraged to stay connected to each other and Day One by
following @dayoneny and @eaglerapp on Instagram. @Eaglerapp is hosting
daily Instagram Live chats on staying healthy and connected during school closure.
If peer leaders are interested in contributing to remote RAPP learning,
they should reach out to their RAPP Coordinator.
 
For Students:
Your RAPP Coordinator is working normal school hours, and can respond to your
messages during those times. If you are in an abusive relationship or seeking support in
navigating a harmful relationship, your RAPP Coordinator can work with you to develop
a safety plan remotely. This will include assessing which remote technology is safest for
you to use to communicate with your Coordinator.
Your RAPP Coordinator is not able to respond to you outside of school hours, and if you
are experiencing a safety concern or mental health crisis after school hours (8:30am -
4:30pm) we encourage you to reach out to NYC Well:
     ● You can request help from a mobile crisis team if you are concerned about a
         family member, friend, or acquaintance who is experiencing (or at risk of) a
         psychological crisis. You can also request a team for yourself. To request a
         team, call NYC Well at (888) NYC-WELL (888-692-9355).
    ● You can call a 24-hour crisis hotline if you are thinking about self-harm or in an
        emergency situation 1-800-273-TALK.
 
If you need support with issues related to domestic violence or dating abuse outside of
school hours please use the Love Is Respect online chat or hotline:
     ● Call 1-866-331-9474 (24/7)
     ● Chat Online with loveisrespect (7 days/week, 5:00 PM to 3:00 AM EST)
    ● Text loveis to 22522
 
Like students, parents, and school staff, we are doing our best to adapt during these
incredibly challenging times. If you have general questions or specific concerns about
RAPP, please contact Rebecca Stahl, Social Work Supervisor at rstahl@dayoneny.org
 
Take good care of yourself and each other!
