The Bilingual (Spanish/English) Youth Counselor-Transitional Age Youth (TAY) Program provides family-based mental health counseling, support, crisis intervention, and case management services to transitional age youth and families. These are youth ages 18 – 25 who have received services through San Francisco’s TAY Behavioral Health Services. This program works to support overall wellness goals for youth, access to community resources, and educational and employment opportunities.
“For me, just knowing that I’m on this ride with young adults and seeing the changes and progress they have made is so rewarding. Working with clients and knowing that I have made an impact on their lives and them telling me about it makes it worth it”. -Seneca TAY Member
Seneca is always looking for ways to actively empower and uplift traditionally marginalized communities. We are honored to lead a nationwide effort, Todo Por Mi Familia, a campaign to find and connect families who sought asylum in the United States to mental health services. Seneca’s agency-wide DEI Advisory Board, Employee Resource Groups, and Language Practice Groups help our employees provide culturally and linguistically relevant services to the families we serve.
