ACGA is made to help teens and their families learn to deal with mental illness in positive and effective ways. We provide individual and group services to help teens learn to deal with the mental illness of them self or one close to them. We offer advice and strategies on communicating ones needs to the adults in his/her life and basic evaluations to determine what the next steps should be.We also take part in attempting to break the stigma of mental illness. Suicide, depression, self injury, eating disorders; all of these are taboo in our culture today. ACGA works as a group to make these issues known and tell teens that it is OK to deal with them.
