Adolescence can be a difficult time for anyone. Drug Abuse, Alcohol AbuseEating Disorders, Unhealthy Relationships, Depression/Self Injury, Internet Safety, and Bullying are just some of the issues that youth are challenged with on a daily basis. amplif(i) is here to aid you in the fight to stand strong in your voice so that you can be the amazing person you are meant to be—all day, every day.
Stay Positive

Sometimes it’s hard to find the courage to keep your two feet rooted on solid ground. We often make choices in life, without knowing what consequences we may face afterwards. Setting boundaries with others and being clear about who you are, where you come from, what is important to you, and where you want to go will help you make positive life choices.

Reach Out

If you’re having problems, know that you don’t have to go through these issues alone. If you’re dealing with substance abuse, bullying, or any other issue, reach out to your friends and family for the support you need. Want to talk to a professional who can help you out? We have a few Emergency Hotlines for you. If you feel your situation is an emergency, pick up the phone and call 911.
