Anchor House Update - February Edition
Mental Health Matters
The rates of depression, anxiety, trauma, loneliness, and suicidality among young people have soared during the pandemic. Anchor House has responded to the need for mental health support and conducted over 600 individual counseling sessions and more than 70 substance abuse sessions in 2021!

As we move forward, Anchor House continues to explore additional ways to help address the growing mental health crisis to offer more support to our youth, their families and the community.

"Anchor House has been such a great source of support to me in my adolescent life." - youth participant

Any youth in need can call our 24-hour crisis hotline at 609-396-8329 to be referred to support at Anchor House or within the community.
