Safe, Confidential Support

The Y is here for all with safe and confidential services that strengthen family life and individual growth. Our team of caring and certified Y professionals are licensed to serve as counselors to youth, families, and schools, specializing in social work, clinical counseling, and alcohol and drug counseling.

If your need is immediate, please see our list of community resources in English and Spanish and hotlines for youth that are there for you in times of crisis and healing.

Youth/Adolescent Mental Health

As endemic effects on mental health for youth and teens continue to rise, the Y continues to grow counseling services, traumatic loss response and support for families. Listen to a podcast of our VP of YMCA Counseling & Social Services, LeeAnn Wagner and New Jersey YMCA State Alliance Director of Strategic Partnerships, Sue Cornell discuss how the Y can help.
