The Blues Program for teens

The Blues Program is an evidence-based prevention program for teens with symptoms of anxiety, stress, and depression. This group program teaches skills that strengthen their power to push back and take more control over negative thoughts and feelings. COBYS Family Services serves as the exclusive trainer of trainers for new site implementation of The Blues Program.

Becoming a Blues Program Trainer



All I wanted was to become a better parent and I know I won’t be the best parent ever and I can only take one day at a time, but I really did learn a lot and I’m very calm when dealing with all the children. Thank you two for all the advice.  –Family Nurturing participant
