Casey's Club™ invites all kids to join our us to learn great social and emotional skills. The lessons are beneficial to everybody. Our clubs are therapeutic groups that always have 2 mental health counselors as facilitators and we only allow up to 10 club members. The only requirement is that club members are self-contained and able to sit in a group for a half an hour. Take a moment and read about our facilitators.
