Our Mission


To positively impact the mental health needs of the communities we serve through services, education, prevention, and support. With an emphasis on the wellness of children and teens, we aim to promote positive mental health and to help destigmatize mental illness, including encouraging dialogue, compassion, self-care and resiliency.

THE PANDEMIC has caused an added strain on our mental wellness, but even before covid, the need for improved mental wellness was clear. We recognize that wellbeing is the result of many factors, and by addressing each, we can make an overall improvement in the individual and the community. We offer programming and support for parents and children.

Our committee is comprised of health professionals and members of the community passionate about making a difference. We recognize the importance of peer to peer assistance, and as such have an active group of teens advising on and implementing our goals. we are in partnership with the ridgewood Y.

The Ridgewood Y offers programs and community connections that positively impact lives through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, building spirit, mind and body for all.
