Youth come to Wraparound for many different reasons. Some youth feel like everybody is all over them, all the time, making a big deal out of what they’re doing. They want to be left alone to make their own decisions, whatever they are.
Some young people are angry at nearly everyone they know. Others are sad, scared and lonely. Some are bullied …others are bullies. Many feel like they don’t fit in anywhere. They often blame themselves for everything bad that happens to them.
Lots (if not all) of youth want to have better days, better relationships, and better ways to express themselves. They want to be optimistic that there’s a brighter future ahead, but they sometimes think that such a future is forever out of reach for them. That they have no hope of happiness.
