I first came to the YPSE group very alone and afraid. The staff made me feel very comfortable as we talked about my situation. We began meeting monthly and I was able to meet other kids that were also teen parents. The Hillcrest Staff helped me with some resources and places to go for answers. I did invite some other students from my school to come too. I am back at school, have a part time job, and have plans to go to college. My child is almost 2 years old and I am glad that Hillcrest was there for me. – D.

One day, a young man contacted Hillcrest about tobacco prevention. During this call, our Integrated Health Home specialist was able to determine that he could benefit for other services. That very same day, our Peer Support Specialist was able to meet with him to set up counseling services. In addition to counseling, the young man attended our tobacco prevention class, and today, he continues to follow through with tobacco prevention and mental health visits which have dramatically decreased his number of psychiatric hospitalization visits.
