About Tykes & Teens

Tykes & Teens was founded in 1996, and has provided mental health services to more than 25,000 local children in need. The non-profit agency is dedicated to strengthening local families and preventing suicide, substance use and other dangerous behaviors by ensuring that all children have access to high quality mental health services, regardless of financial status.

These services include counseling as well as a wide range of specialized programming that helps families cope with issues such as sexual abuse, domestic violence, bullying, school suspension and more.

Tykes & Teens provides outpatient services at three locations in Martin County: Palm City, Jensen Beach, and Hobe Sound, as well as on site counseling in 13 Martin County schools. The agency has recently expanded to St. Lucie, Okeechobee and Indian River Counties, due to the high demand for their evidence based, award winning programming.

 

In The Community

The Prevention Services Division of Tykes & Teens administers an alcohol prevention curriculum in all Martin County middle schools, and has provided more than 500 free community events since 2010. These events are carefully designed to increase protective assets that are proven to help youth avoid drugs and alcohol and other dangerous behaviors. 

Tykes & Teens provides approximately $700,000 in free counseling and other services to the community each year. The support of the community is vital in ensuring that no child in need of services is turned away. At Tykes & Teens, we believe that we cannot wait for another tragedy to happen - locally or nationally - to make affordable, accessible mental health services a priority.
