The best part of YAT for me this year was being able to learn and engage in a healthy, fun, and safe environment.

The best part of YAT this year was the If They Had Known Screening about Clay and learning about mixing prescription drugs and alcohol. Also, I really liked when Andrew and Emma Kate (two local therapists) role-played various situations about how to help a friend.

I just enjoyed every meeting I went to. It was a new learning experience every Thursday. It helps relieve stress from school and sports. It also teaches me how to deal with life problems that do not normally get talked about.
