We are grateful for the support of Women in Philanthropy, which funds a portion of training for professionals in our Eating Disorders programming.
Tykes & Teens was established in 1996 with the goal of strengthening local families by ensuring that all children have access to high quality counseling and mental health services, regardless of financial status. The agency provides a comprehensive range of programming in Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River and Okeechobee counties.
Counseling services are provided on a sliding scale at 3 outpatient locations: Palm City, Hobe Sound and Jensen Beach, and onsite in 13 Martin County schools, at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Martin County and in the Okeechobee school system. We collaborate with the Healthy Families program in Indian River County, and Infant Mental Health is provided across all 4 counties.
Our Prevention Services division has provided more than 300 free community events designed to prevent substance use, dating violence and suicide among local youth, and administers a youth alcohol prevention curriculum in Martin County middle schools.
Tykes& Teens has provided direct services to more than 25,000 local families, and also seeks to advocate for increased awareness of mental health in order to remove the stigma and shame often associated with seeking mental health treatment. If you are in need of counseling services for your child, please call us at 772-220-3439.
Mental Health Matters, Every Day.
This organization is an equal opportunity agency/provider.
