Who are "our youth"? They are children and youth with emotional and behavioral challenges. They are young people who are not defined by their diagnosis but must learn to function day-to-day despite of it. They have personal strengths, ideas to share and dreams of achieving great things, like graduating from college, becoming a writer, getting a job, being a good parent, and more.
The purpose of this site is to inform, educate and provide guidance to anyone who touches the children’s public mental health system in Monroe County. Whether you are a youth, family member/caregiver, mental health provider, educator or other community member, there is something here for you.
