Outreach Teen & Family Services is a community based child, teen and family counseling agency. Founded in 1974, we provide professional, confidential counseling to young people ages 5 to 21 and their families. We see clients for a variety of concerns from anger management, family problems and school related issues to depression, anxiety, drug & alcohol and many other issues.
All of our counselors hold a minimum of a master’s degree. Clients are seen within a short period of time from the initial contact with Outreach. Funding for Outreach is provided by the Mt. Lebanon Municipality, Allegheny County, fees, foundations, corporations, school contracts, businesses, civic and religious groups, fundraisers and individual donations. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit Community Benefit Organization.
Outreach turns no one away because of inability to pay and in cases of financial hardship, will provide an appropriate subsidy. Some of Outreach’s counselors are credentialed to accept Aetna/Conventry, CIGNA, Highmark or UPMC insurance. For over 40 years, Outreach Teen & Family Services has provided a welcoming and supportive environment for young people and their families. We offer counseling and educational programs that are affordable, accessible, confidential and responsive.
We are an expert source of information regarding current adolescent and parenting challenges.
Our mission is to promote and provide empathetic, personal, accessible and affordable mental health counseling and wellness programs for children and families.
Be a part of an the Adolescent Behavioral Health Initiative!
The Adolescent Behavioral Health Initiative began in April 2016 and aims to improve access to and accountability for effective behavioral health services for adolescents in Allegheny County who are experiencing a mental health or substance use crisis.
The initiative is guided by a 40-member advisory community, and funded by the Jewish Healthcare Foundation, the Staunton Farm Foundation, and The Pittsburgh Foundation.
The first phase of the three-year initiative will focus on understanding the problem and creating action plans for years two and three. To understand the problem, JHF is analyzing data from the Pennsylvania Health Care Cost Containment Council database, mapping the continuum of services from crisis to stabilization, collecting stories about families’ experiences getting care for adolescents in a mental health or substance use crisis, and organizing focus groups about families’ and adolescents’ experiences with the continuum of services from crisis to stabilization. A white paper will also be developed to assemble this information and create a road map with action plans for advocacy and improvement.
