After receiving emergency medical treatment for ingesting a large quantity of pills, Ada was transferred to Uplift Family Services’ Crisis Stabilization Unit. Her team immediately met with Ada, where she tearfully told them about the severe bullying she had been experiencing at school and online.

After the assessment and stabilization process was complete, a plan was quickly put into place, and her team continued working with her post-discharge. Over the next three months, Ada identified her natural supports at school and at home, and learned how to be assertive and set limits. As her confidence grew, she decided to join the debate team where she was able to make new, supportive friends.

She recently graduated from the program, and is now able to stay safely at home with her family!
