Services for Teens At Risk (STAR Center)
Services for Teens At Risk (STAR-Center) is a comprehensive research, treatment, and training center. Funded by the State of Pennsylvania’s General Assembly in 1986 to address adolescent suicide and depression, the program provides individual assessment and treatment to teens that are experiencing depression and suicidality. They also provide community education services about depression and suicidality to schools, social service agencies, churches and other organizations that request them. Any PA school can contact the STAR-Center for assistance in the aftermath of a suicide or other tragic loss. STAR-Center can also provide in-service training and resource materials on a variety of mental health related topics.
