Youth Services We Offer:

Youth Peer Support

Youth meet one-on-one with someone who has experienced similar challenges. Meetings are informal—you might play hoops or play a board game—with a focus on listening, sharing, coping skills, and strategies for success. It’s a time to talk with someone who cares, understands and takes you seriously.

 
 
 
Therapy

Our Master’s level therapists will work one-on-one with you utilizing evidence-based interventions.   You will work hand-in-hand with your therapists to develop a Recovery Plan that will help you achieve your mental health goals. 

Care Coordination

CC services consist of assisting an enrolled child’s family or a youth, who is struggling with complex mental health needs such as involvement in several systems (i.e., mental health /special-ed /legal system) or transitioning from institutional care by utilizing a wraparound approach to coordinating services and strengthening connections to natural supports and life in the community.

Youth- CHAT

Youth- CHAT (Conversations about Health, Associations, and Trust) provides youth 13-17 currently enrolled in Passages Family Support with a safe place to vent their frustrations, ideas, and experiences with a group of peers they can relate to. Youth CHAT is a great way to meet new friends. Free food and fun are provided at every meeting. Meetings are staffed by a Passage’s Peer Counselor but are led and directed by youth for youth. Youth choose the topics and many of the activities. All youth are required to abide by an agreed upon set of group rules to assure everyone feels welcome and safe.

TAY- CHAT

(Transitional Age Youth Conversations about Health, Associations, and Trust)

This group is being offered to assist transitional age youth (ages 16+) in developing and strengthening independent living skills.
