Are you feeling alone, depressed, stressed, anxious, fearful, tired, or struggling with addiction or mental health? Come to The SAFETY Net where you will be welcomed with open arms! You deserve to be supported and do not need to rely on negative coping skills any longer. Today is the day that things can change! Stop on by!
Being young and juggling everything that is demanded of you can be stressful. It is exhausting to be in school all day, partaking in extracurricular activities, working, completing homework and making time for a social life. It is not uncommon to feel isolated and like you are not being supported. The overwhelming stress, anxieties, and frustrations are too much to handle alone. So many people resort to drinking alcohol, using drugs, isolating or using other maladaptive behavior; however, these are not long-term tools and can become destructive.
Good news though: you are not alone and you do not need to handle everything by yourself. Come to the SAFETY Net and become part of the supportive young people community. You will meet other teens and young adults who can relate to what you are going through and who can offer support. The community here at The SAFETY Net is welcoming to all and a safe place for everyone to come to.
In our center, we have a computer lab to do homework in, FREE classes to help manage stress, weekly game/movie nights, a space to relax and more! Furthermore, here at The SAFETY Net we provide alternative tools to manage stress and life’s changes, so that you do not need to rely on negative behaviors. Every week we offer yoga, reiki, acupuncture, and dance classes. We practice a holistic approach to help everyone who walks through the doors. We can also connect you to other services if you need support with mental health, addiction, eating disorder, etc.
