Santa Fe Youth Services, led by YAP Vice President Virginia Hoft, is part of a system-wide collaboration in Tarrant County focused on increasing resilience and improving outcomes for youth. This OP-ED talks about the Reaching Teens program, developed by Dr. Ken Ginsberg and implemented by Mental Health Connection of Tarrant County.
Ginsberg said in his report on the 3-year program, "The most important ingredient youth need to thrive are adults who care about them deeply and who hold them to high expectations… I could not be more genuine when I tell you that Mental Health Connection is a model for the nation."
Collaboration between diverse but like-minded entities targeting one overarching goal, to better support and care for our youth, is what YAP desires for all communities.
