We have community partnerships with several Bowie elementary, middle and high school. BYFS is certified by the State of Maryland as a youth services bureau. Families are referred to BYFS from many sources, including: Prince George’s County schools, Department of Juvenile Services, health care providers, insurance companies, and family and friends. Staff includes social workers, marriage and family therapists, professional counselors, and an alcohol and drug prevention specialist. We will have family therapists on site to share and educate on the importance of family mental services to the community. Talking about the importance of mental health and how it plays out in the family unit.
