Andrew James Pittington's Groups

Adolescent Support Groups

Adolescent support groups, led by Andrew Pittington, are designed to bring individuals similar in age together in a objective and confidential environmnet where they may learn and engage in finding new ways to overcome issues relating to mental and/or behavioral health. Unlike one-on-one or family counsling. Adolescents gain a new, positive insight from other individuals completely free of judgment and ultimately walk away once a week having learned something new about themselves and ways to live a more positive and healthy lifestyle
