Some common reasons that young people request counseling include:
In addition, Pride for Youth runs support groups for young people at different times throughout the year. Support groups are places where youth can learn a lot more about themselves and help each other with common problems. Some of our groups use creative arts and/or theater as a method for helping youth express themselves positively and develop new talents. Groups are facilitated by professional workers and are located at our Bellmore office. Check out our Coffeehouse Events page, which includes a calendar listing current group meetings.
