Council on Adolescent Mental Health
High school is a difficult time for teenagers. Balancing student life in a more demanding environment while being introduced to new social situations can prove challenging. Lacking an individualized support system can add yet another layer of complication to a teenagers life. Council on Adolescent Mental Health is introducing peer-based support systems in our local schools to help our struggling youth while bettering communication skills!
Peer counseling is the process of pairing a struggling individual with a trained individual to listen and provide support. The program is supervised by the CAMH program team and is implemented on school sites as well as virtually. All training delivered to our counselors is led by CAMH certified trainers and supervised by our program director.
