Support Groups

Support groups are necessary when working with youth. While volunteers are always ready and available to help youth in any way possible, sometimes a person just needs to know that someone is going through the same issue that they are. Because of this, support groups are vital part of Youth First Texas.

Reflections:
This group is specifically focused on body image and healthy eating. This small group, run by counselor Cyndi Matthews, gives support to each other on body image and how to take care of ourselves physically, mentally and emotionally. The members of the group give suggestions and support throughout the group, while Cyndi gives a theraputic stand. Held Tuesdays at 7 PM

Survivors Group:
This is a closed group where youth who have suffered from abuse can share stories of heartache and triump. This is an extremely important group, as several of the youth have been abused in same way. Each group member is extremely supporting and gives ideas on how others may be able to conquer their fears and overcome their abuse.

Gender Identity Group
This support group is for GLBTQ youth dealing with issues of gender identity, transgender and/or transsexual issues. The group is also open to youth who are curious about gender identity is, or what their transgender friends are dealing with. Held every other Thursday from 7:30 – 9 PM
