Program and Services: Mental Health
In 2017, NUY birthed a new and independent Mental Health Youth Board. This first generation of youth tackled some enormous challenges in the field of mental health for youth. NUY provides access to mental health professionals in times of need. NUY provides training and opportunities for youth to learn about mental health and to take charge of a lagging culture when it comes to understanding youth mental health. NUY can help with relational referrals to therapists based on our relational approach to youth. We’ve found too often that youth stop seeing a therapist they were randomly assigned to, rather than seeking out a different professional who may be a better fit for their personality.

“Hello, my name is Haley Heiner. I am the Co-President of the Northfield Union of Youth, also known as 'The Key.' I have been attending there for a while now and I’ve honestly never felt more at home there. So many wonderful people have accepted me there and I’ve gained amazing new friendships. The Key has helped me through so much regarding mental health, social skills, financial problems, and more. Without The Key, I don’t know where I would be today, and so many youth could say the same. The Key is the longest-running youth-led and youth-empowering organization recorded in the United States and I want it to stay that way. So many kids, including me, need a safe space like The Key. I'm so grateful that I have a place like this, and I am beyond grateful that our community cares for this organization.”
