ABOUT BRIDGES

YES Community Counseling Center a licensed NYS OASAS facility, has received funding from SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) to support youth ages 17 to 25 years of age and their families at risk for and impacted by substance use. With our partners, BRIDGES (Building Resources for Individuals to Develop, Guide, Encourage, and Support) will also support historically underserved populations such as young adult veterans, Latinx young adults, LGBTQIA+ individuals, and those involved with the criminal justice system. This program seeks to influence cultural norms that are conducive to reaching young people where they live, learn, and socialize who are living with with substance use and mental health concerns.

 

BRIDGES provides comprehensive strength based prevention, intervention, treatment, and recovery services, ensuring accessibility to critical services through our grant partners. Training and services are provided to assist schools, colleges, and other organizations to develop a supportive environment for young adults. BRIDGES seeks to engage, support and empower young adults and their families, identify needs, overcome barriers to get help, and to mobilize community recovery support services.
