About

Our Mission

Turn About provides services for children, adolescents, and college undergraduate young adults who are at-risk for or have mental health, substance and/or behavioral problems and/or who have been victims of family or non-family violence. Turn About is a family and community-oriented program, which assists these young people to stay drug-free and to better manage their emotional and behavioral responses to life's challenges. Turn About works hard to assist families as a whole to reach their goals both as individuals and as a family by facilitating effective communication, appropriate boundaries and positive family structure. Turn About provides training and education regarding youth, families, substances, violence and behavior problems for students, parents, educators, social service providers, and law enforcement. Turn About, Inc. provides services without regard to race, color, sex, creed, religion, national origin or handicapping conditions.
