Social Advocates for Youth (SAY) expands counseling services this summer

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

In partnership with Sonoma County Library, SAY’s mental health clinicians will be hosting a series of weekly 1-hour 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.

Groups start on June 13th and June 18th at the following library branches: Central Santa Rosa Library, Healdsburg Regional Library, Petaluma Regional Library, Rohnert Park Cotati Regional Library, and Sebastopol Regional Library. Interested young people can learn more, see group times, and sign up here. 

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, in satellite sites, in family homes, and in 27 elementary, middle and high schools across the county. Last year, 1,819 youth and families access SAY’s counseling services.

Thanks to our amazing partners at Sonoma County Library for hosting us and to the American Red Cross for helping fund these expanded services!
