Sabrina – Prevention

Before joining YOS, 17-year-old Sabrina faced challenges with depression and substance abuse. Through YOS’s art therapy program, she discovered a constructive way to cope with her struggles.

Sabrina explains the impact of this creative therapy, saying, “Now, I can control my feelings. I draw and write when I am feeling depressed. I use art as therapy.” Her progress was showcased at a YOS-sponsored talent show, where she displayed her artwork.

Reflecting on her experience with YOS, Sabrina acknowledges the organization’s role in her personal growth: “YOS has been a resource for me to help better myself and achieve my goals,” she says. “I feel YOS believes in me.”
