Social Advocates for Youth (SAY) is proud to announce it will be offering free counseling services for youth this winter at three Sonoma County Library branches. 

In partnership with Sonoma County Library, SAY’s mental health clinicians will be hosting a series of weekly and bi-weekly drop-in wellness groups for youth ages 12-19. These groups will be focused on supporting mental wellness and healthy ways to cope with challenges. Possible topics include: normal responses to loss and change, identifying complex emotions, and making meaningful choices.

Bi-weekly and weekly drop-in groups are currently being hosted at Rincon Valley Regional Library  and   Sonoma County History & Genealogy Library,  respectively, through March. Weekly drop-in groups will start at the Sebastopol Regional Library  on February 7, 2020. 

SAY’s Counseling Department offers mental health services to children, youth, and their families across Sonoma County, serving clients with cultural- and age-appropriate services. These services are offered on-site at the SAY Dream Center, at satellite sites, in family homes, and in 18 elementary, middle and high schools across the county. Last year, 1,819 children, youth and families accessed SAY’s counseling services. 

This 2017 California Wildfire recovery project was funded in part by a grant from the American Red Cross.
