Northeast DuPage Family and Youth Services (NEDFYS) is a community-based, nonprofit organization that provides mental health services and programs to DuPage County residents. NEDFYS programs and services target three prominent areas of mental health and wellness in the communities we serve: police-based social services, school-based social services, and mental health counseling. NEDFYS has served over 400 individuals and families within the last year and all of our services are available in both English and Spanish.
NEDFYS' police-based social services address the entire juvenile justice continuum through crisis intervention services and probation counseling groups. Our crisis intervention services are provided through 14-DuPage County police departments. This service works to address "at-risk" youth between the ages of 11 and 17. NEDFYS also provides group counseling to youth and their parents in collaboration with DuPage County Probation. Recently, NEDFYS received funding to provide group counseling services to adolescent girls at the Illinois Department of Juvenile Justice facility in Warrenville, Illinois.
NEDFYS also works collaboratively with staff from several local area schools to serve students who have been identified by school personnel as having social and emotional needs that are negatively impacting their cognitive and executive functioning. Recently, NEDFYS was contracted by the Bensenville School District to provide services at their new Community Center. These services seek to proactively provide early intervention to parents and children and assist in establishing further services.
NEDFYS provides an array of programs and services to those residing in the communities of Northeast DuPage County. Check out our website for more information regarding our service areas, programs and services we offer, and other community resources.
