ABOUT MENDOCINO COUNTY YOUTH PROJECT
Mendocino County Youth Project opened its doors in 1974 as a system for aiding youth who were struggling in school. Since that time, the facility has become a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides mental health support for children, adolescents, and young adults in the Ukiah, Fort Bragg, Willits, and Point Arena school districts.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Mental health services are available to all individuals below the age of 24. There is a strong emphasis on family counseling sessions, and evidence-based therapy methods are incorporated through meetings with skilled therapists.
Specialized services are also available for child victims of crime, and well as youth struggling with substance abuse. As of 2016 in the state of California, 5.07 percent of adolescents ages 12 to 17 exhibited substance use disorder that year, and 5.08 percent of youth needed but did not receive treatment at a specialty facility for substance use.
The facility is one of the only 317 (22.2 percent) in California to have specifically tailored-programming for substance use amongst adolescents. There is a Youth Crisis Line available to adolescents ages 12 to 18 available 24/7 as well.
The Ukiah location offers Transition Age Youth Services for individuals between the ages of 18 and 21. This is a six-month residential facility where young adults receive individualized support from social workers and therapists, as well as daily life coaching sessions.
In addition, the center provides support services, local agency referrals, transportation, and home visits as requested.
This center employs licensed clinicians trained in working specifically with children, young adults, and families, as well as a team of therapists and youth workers.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Pictures on the faciity's website show that the transitional, residential home consists of clean, shared bedrooms with a small kitchen and a large living room.
