Positive Pathways

Positive Pathways provides mental health and substance use prevention therapy to youth and their families in Eaton and Ingham County. This service is offered to youth ages 10-17 who may be at risk of juvenile justice involvement or are currently participating in diversion programs. Positive Pathways is provided by Child and Family Charities to help youth strengthen their emotional health by increasing coping skills and emotional regulation, educating on substance misuse and its consequences, and providing supportive services to the youth’s family. Participation is voluntary and consists of weekly therapeutic sessions.
