Mental Investment Program
This program caters to at risk youth. Often times the actions of young people stem from what is going on within them. When there is no positive outlet or they have not been given the proper tools to communicate, the outcome can be detrimental. In this program, youth will be incentivized by stipend to seek counsel and participate in therapy. This fosters a want for assistance and healthy mental health development.
