CASSY

In a given year, 20% of young people experience mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, eating disorders, academic stress, low self-esteem, and substance abuse. Unfortunately, the vast majority of these kids do not receive the treatment they need. Left untreated, many teens contemplate suicide, the 3rd leading cause of death for young people today. CASSY (Counseling and Support Services for Youth) was started in 2009 to attack this problem and provide the social and emotional support our young people need.

 

It has been proven that when you put competent, compassionate therapists on the school campus, students will come in and get help. In fact, about 20-25% of the entire student body will come in. Some once or twice. Some every week. Being school-based is absolutely the key.

 

CASSY’s approach is simple:

•Partner with schools that understand and value the importance of mental health to the educational process
•Hire professional, compassionate therapists that love working with youth
•Set up shop right on campus and integrate the CASSY team with the school’s staff
