Needham Youth Services
Founded in 1967 by concerned residents, Needham Youth Services (formerly known as the Needham Youth Commission) has earned the respect of the community for its dedication to providing quality services.

Over the past four-plus decades, as the needs of youth and families have evolved, Youth Services has kept pace by offering relevant programs and clinical services. In 2017 we will celebrate our 50th anniversary, and you can click on the following to learn more about the history of Youth Services.

Youth Services is a division within the Town of Needham's Health and Human Services Department along Public Health, Council on Aging, and Veterans Services.

Needham Youth Services operates as a mental health resource providing professional and confidential clinical and programmatic services. We provide support, information, and direction to youth and families on issues such as family, social, peer, stress, loss, alcohol, drug, and other youth-related concerns.

We base our services upon a self-help philosophy in which youth and families utilize the expertise of the staff to expand their awareness and understanding, and eventually learn the skills to more effectively take control of their lives.
