The Acton-Boxborough Coalition for Healthy Youth (ABCHY) strives to unite, empower and mobilize the community to promote positive youth development and prevent risky behaviors in adolescents. ABCHY's primary goal is to ensure that our youth are valued and respected and that they receive the help and support they need.
ABCHY is leading a coordinated effort to identify the extensive array of available community services and ensure that they are known to the widest possible audience. ABCHY understands the importance of collaboration with other local organizations because one organization alone cannot provide the solution for every need.
The Acton-Boxborough Coalition for Healthy Youth (ABCHY) focuses its efforts in three key areas:
Mental Health and Wellness
Adolescent Substance Use and Abuse
Youth Violence Prevention
We share our resources to address specific needs of adolescents, provide them with tools to prevent risky behaviors and find appropriate resolutions including treatment options when necessary.
