Our Mission Statement

Mental Health Support

We know that the hardest thing to do is to admit you are feeling a certain way.  Whether you can’t get over the test you failed, you had a fight with a friend, or your life at home is not what you pictured, the hardest problems are never solved alone.  While it may seem that you are the only person going through this, there are other people who can relate to what you are experiencing and are out there to help guide your through your struggles. 


You may have questions about why you feel the way that you do.  You may still be thinking about something that bothers you, a mistake you have made, or a problem that seems like it will never be solved.  Remember to be kind and patient with yourself.  You are only human. You are not alone. 

Suicide Prevention
Suicide among teens is a nation problem.  More teens die from suicide than from cancer, heart disease, AIDS, birth defects, stoke, pneumonia, influenza, and chronic lung disease combined.
The first step in assisting teens may be as simple as learning the FACTS or warning signs
Feelings - Expressing hopelessness about the future
Actions - Displaying severe/overwhelming pain or distress
Changes - Showing worrisome behavioral cues or marked changes in behavior
Threats - Talking about, writing about, or making plans for suicide
Situations - Experiencing stressful situations including those that involve loss, change, or involve getting in trouble
