Greene PTA and its members generously donate and support the Counseling And Support Services for Youth (CASSY) annually.CASSY is a non-profit organization whose mission is to de-stigmatize mental health services and make supporting students’ social and emotional well-being the norm in our local schools. We want to provide all students with the continuity of support they need, from the first day of kindergarten until they graduate from high school, to be successful in school and in life. CASSY actively collaborates with Greene Middle School staff and teachers to provide on-campus counseling to individuals, groups and families at no cost to secondary school students. The goal of the program is to provide life-saving early intervention for teens dealing with challenging issues of adolescence.With accessible, compassionate therapists available on campus, teens have a safety net of professionals with whom to confront their issues. The range of issues addressed through the program includes academic stress, peer conflict, self-esteem, depression and anxiety, suicidal thoughts, grief and loss, and substance abuse.CASSY therapists connect students and families to vital community resources, such as mentoring programs, after-school activities, community organizations and health care. The program also includes bilingual counseling and education for Latino families.For more information about CASSY, click on the following link:Counseling And Support Services for Youth
