We help children as they deal with the many challenges they may face growing up in today’s world. Some issues our social workers see every day include, but are not limited to:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Social issues
  • Families in transition
  • School/academic difficulties
  • Eating disorders
  • Alcohol and substance use/abuse
  • Bullying and harassment
  • Self-harm

Community youth struggling with any of these issues should not hesitate to reach out for help. Referrals to PYS can be made by school personnel, parents or self-referral. Students may be seen in the schools or at our offices conveniently located in the Spiegel Community Center on Lincoln Avenue in the Village. Simply call Executive Clinical Director, Loraine Young at 248-6203 to make an appointment with a social worker.
