Bremen Youth Services (BYS) is a not-for-profit community mental health agency which has served youth and their families since 1964. Services are available to individuals ages 5-21 and their families. Although the agency serves Bremen Township residents, we are not bound by township lines and welcome anyone in need of services.
BYS participates in coalitions in order to network, collaborate, and maximize the services available to our community. Through these partnerships a comprehensive referral service is provided.
Services are provided by counselors, social workers, and graduate level interns committed to providing quality care to our clients and their families. Our staff includes licensed counselors and social workers as well as certified drug and alcohol counselors with a multitude of strengths and specialties. Mental health professionals employed at the agency participate in ongoing continuing education opportunities to enhance professional development.
We at Bremen Youth Services are dedicated professionals committed to providing quality mental health, substance abuse, and prevention services. It is our overall goal to enhance the quality of life for individuals and families. Our belief is that all people are valuable and unique and should be treated with dignity and respect whether they are homeless, working as a plumber or are privileged. While recognizing the potential for change, an assessment of the client’s emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual needs is provided in a caring environment. The growth of the individual is promoted through a course of treatment developed and executed in a timely and cost effective manner.
