Mental Health, Wellness, and AYA Program Support

Each day, our team works to ensure that you have the support needed to be seen, to be heard, and to be you.

We wanted to reach out because we know that the past week, for many, has been especially tough. The tragic events in Chapel Hill this past weekend have highlighted what many of us have recently felt in our gut: that life has been overwhelming and the challenges many. Our team, as professionals and as human beings, want to sit with and support you in this time. Below, you will find a collection of resources that we find are useful to turn to in difficult times. Before ending this message; however, we want to remind you of a few things:

  • It is ok to not be ok

  • Asking for help isn’t a weakness

  • No act of self-care is too small

Our team is here to support you, whoever and however you are: a young adult, a loved one, a patient, a person. Please don’t hesitate to reach out.

Take care,

The AYA Program Team
