The program is designed to intervene early and teach important behavioral skills and healthy coping mechanisms to help these teens deal with anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues. The goal of the program is to give these at-risk youths tools to use when feeling frustrated or sad and help them get the mental health help that they need. The program is already seeing success in just a few months and is providing teens with support for education and college preparation.
