Youth First provides a menu of proven programs to equip young people with the mental health resiliency necessary to respond to life challenges with positive choices rather than with risky “escapes” like substance abuse, self-harm, violence, or emotional withdrawal. Youth First Social Workers are embedded in schools and present every day school is in session, equipped with the best prevention and early intervention skills to help students build resilience and trust instead of turning to much more dangerous coping strategies like getting high, acting out with violence, or harming themselves. They are specialized mentors who are readily available to assess and address student, family and school needs. They also coordinate with community partners to connect students and families to resources and services. A list of social workers in area schools can be found at youthfirstinc.org. Students and families who have been victimized by crime can contact the Youth First Social Worker by calling the school office.
