ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The TAY Program services build on the values and strengths of each young adult and family, and are tailored to meet their unique and changing needs. As our approach to services is youth driven, each client identifies the focus of their treatment, as well as the people they want on their treatment team, which may include supportive family, friends, or community members. Participation is voluntary, and youth are able to decide when they are ready for mental health services to end.
At Seneca Family of Agencies, we pride ourselves on building a diverse staff team and strongly encourage people of color to apply. Our programs deeply engage in conversations and training on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion to bring equity and justice to the youth and families we serve. The driving force behind our growth is our commitment to providing traditionally marginalized communities a network of outstanding mental health, community-based, and educational services.
