During the upcoming transition from distance learning to hybrid in-school learning, BYS will keep the virtual format of our programs a constant for the time being, including our virtual counseling. While students can continue to meet with a counselor from their own home, they can also request to conduct their virtual sessions from a private BYS counseling room. Students can inquire about this in their initial appointment request or through their counselor.
Bainbridge Youth Services offers FREE and CONFIDENTIAL professional mental health counseling and facilitates a thriving peer tutoring program. When students step into BYS, we listen and we learn from them. We assure them that they are not alone in their struggles. We know they can navigate any obstacle – with a little help.
We believe hope equals resilience.
In the last several years, we’ve experienced a five-fold uptick in demand as levels of youth stress, anxiety and depression have increased. BYS strives to help students meet the challenges they face by equipping them with life skills to learn from the past, live in the present, and hope for the future.
Thanks to our generous community, all BYS offerings are free!
