NFusion Metro is a youth program that provides mental health resources to youth and their families in a stigma-free teen environment. The program helps individuals between the ages of 14-21 transition into adulthood through activities, groups, counseling, and peer support. Participants must have emotional, mental or behavioral problems or be involved with two or more child serving agencies.
Youth will receive traditional mental health services in addition to a variety of supports including assistance with life skills, tutoring, educational support, health services, substance use, employment skills and support groups.
- NFusion Metro therapists use Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TFCBT). TFCBT provides one-on-one therapy that focuses on helping youth deal with the effects of traumatic experiences. Therapists are also trained to help with substance use disorders through an Intensive Outpatient Program.
- Wraparound is a planning process that involves family members and individuals from different parts of the youth’s life. Facilitators help the group work toward coordinating and building a cohesive plan by understanding the family’s situation.
- Peer Support aid in the youth’s recovery or transition by sharing similar experiences as well as giving encouragement, hope, and guidance.
- Social activities such as youth and family nights, recreational games, and community events help build self-awareness, confidence, and trust.
