Life Skills Center
The Life Skills Center is a highly structured and supportive therapeutic program for adolescents, ages 12-18 years, that are presenting with major mental illness and who are experiencing disruptions in their home, school, or community. The program offers therapeutic groups and activities based on best practices to help teens gain insight into their emotions and behavioral patterns, to develop more effective ways of coping, and improve their self esteem and social skills in order to be successful in school and within their communities.
We are pleased to share comments from the people we serve:
"I am a single mother of two children ages 10 and 9. Both children have very challenging disabilities that are a daily struggle both at home and at school; coupled with behavioral issues which makes the simplest tasks complicated. The staff at Riverside are phenomenal! They have been my 'rock' on many occasions and without them I would be completely and utterly lost."
