|Who We Are
The mission of the Henry County Youth Services Bureau is to empower youth to succeed by serving them in their home, school and community.
Founded in 1972, we are dedicated to providing free counseling services to youth ages 3 to 21. In 2015 we served approximately 220 Henry County youth with individual or family counseling services at no cost to them.
YSB Counselors provide a wide array of services, including:
- individual counseling
- family counseling
- group counseling, quite often in partnership with schools, to assist youth in developing social competencies and to build peer support for at-risk youth.
- prevention education/character education to area students in their classrooms.
- parent education to parents of elementary aged children with The Incredible Years program.
- a youth diversion program, in partnership with Henry County Court Services, using the research based, cognitive behavioral program Aggression Replacement Training.
- referral services
YSB Staff provide counseling services at a location that is convenient to the client and their family. Counseling sessions are offered year round, and can be held at a client’s school, home, community center, or the YSB office.
