Counseling Services

Birmingham Youth Assistance provides low cost, confidential, short-term, family-centered counseling services for young people under 17 years of age, and their families, who live within the boundaries of the Birmingham Public School district. Referrals are accepted from schools, police, neighbors and parents themselves with concerns about their children.

Additional referrals may be diverted from the Oakland County Circuit Court — Family Division Intake Unit when, in their judgment, Birmingham Youth Assistance services are most appropriate.

Typical reasons for referral are:

  • Social adjustment problems
  • School truancy and/or school incorrigibility
  • Home truancy and/or home incorrigibility
  • Retail fraud/shoplifting
  • Violations of local ordinances
  • Alcohol & other drug abuse
