Description: Clinical Services for Youth is a community-based outreach counseling program for youth and families. CSY, formerly Stopover Services, has been working with youth since 1981, and, in 2006, merged with East Bay Community Action Program through which it continues to offer crisis intervention, counseling and outreach geared toward achieving stability for youth and families. The scope of services includes bio-psycho-social assessments; individual, group, and family therapy; as well as referrals to community agencies as needed.  Services can occur at home, school, office, or other community settings. 

In addition, CSY offers school-based counseling through Student Assistance Counselors located at Tiverton Middle and High Schools. The approach is creative and flexible. 

CSY offers services through the Youth Diversionary Program with the intention of diverting youth from the juvenile justice system and preventing families from involvement with the Department of Children, Youth, and Families. Wayward and Disobedient (Article 23) clients are referred to CSY by police departments in Newport County communities.
