Youth Guidance Group

The Lakeview Youth Guidance Group is a guidance, educational and support group for children and adolescents within the Lakeview Community and other surrounding communities.

The group specifically focuses on enhancing awareness of mental health and the knowledge of various mental health constructs associated with the African American culture, increasing effective social and communication skills and the learning of new ways to increase more effective ways to cope with everyday life. In addition, the group aids in promoting new ways to increase self-care and self-regulation along with enhancing basic problem-solving and effective goal-setting skills.  The third group (Psychoeducation - Coping Skills) will be Saturday, May 19, at the Williamson-Harris Park beginning with the children’s group (4-12 years old) at 1 p.m. and the adolescent group (13-19 years old) will begin at 2 p.m. The groups will be held once a month.
