Early Intervention

Raising awareness and creating a dialogue around substance abuse, mental health and suicide. 


Teach social and emotional principles to youth in a way they can understand and remember.

Creating awareness

 Combat the stigma surrounding mental health, and serve as a resource to those touched by substance abuse, suicide, and behavioral challenges.

Providing solutions

Offering parent support groups, youth mentorship, and school initiatives to help keep families together.

School Initiatives

Journey Home works closely with many schools, communities, and organizations throughout the Southern California area. In attempt to be proactive instead of reactive, our organization provides early intervention evidence-based life skills curriculums. These programs and strategies include teaching students healthy coping mechanisms, life skills education, and behavioral modification strategies.

Guest Lectures

The Journey Home program provides guest lectures from licensed Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Educational Counselors, Probation Officers, and Local Police Departments.

Parent Support Groups

The team at Journey Home understands that parents need support with their at-risk youth. In these support groups, we aim to build social engagements between parents, emotional support, encouragement, conflict resolution, reading material, and much more. These meetings include guest speakers, open forums for support, and educational discussions on suicide, mental health, and addressing problem behaviors.

WhyTry© Program

The WhyTry© Program is a resilience education curriculum that provides simple, hands-on solutions for dropout prevention, violence prevention, truancy reduction, and increased academic success.

It helps to motivate and re-engage students who may be struggling with challenges at home and in school. WhyTry© is proven effective at increasing student resilience, motivating unmotivated students, increasing GPA, reducing drop out rates, improving social-emotional health, and reducing bullying and violent behavior.

The idea is straightforward: Teach social and emotional principles to youth in a way they can understand and remember. WhyTry© is based on sound empirical principles, including solution-focused brief therapy, social and emotional intelligence, and multi-sensory learning.

The WhyTry© curriculum utilizes a series of ten visual analogies that teach important life skills (decisions have consequences; dealing with peer pressure; obeying laws and rules; plugging in to support systems). 

The visual analogies are reinforced through the creative use of customized hip-hop music, video, over 150 learning activities, journal activities that help students reflect on program concepts, and other multimedia. The WhyTry© curriculum engages all major learning styles (visual, auditory, and body-kinesthetic). WhyTry© is often used for RTI and PBiS.

The WhyTry© Program is currently at work in over 20,000 organizations in all 50 of the United States, as well as Canada, the UK, and Australia.
