Community Support Groups
Seeking greater harmony in your family? Newport Healthcare offers parent support groups, which are at no cost and are open to the community, that combine two of our greatest assets: our clinicians and connections with other parents. The primary objective of our support groups is to provide information on teen and young adult mental health for our local communities, in an effort to share tools to support sustainable healing. Our licensed therapists also offer support groups for teens and young adults, to facilitate honest dialogue around what it means to engage with today’s world as a Gen Z or Millennial.
Education & Workforce Development
We believe in investing in our youth from the classroom to the boardroom, and all the milestones in between. Our academic, vocational, and independent-living initiatives help level the playing field for youth by ensuring that they have tools for staying happy and healthy at school and in the workplace.
Botvin LifeSkills: Evidence-Based Prevention Programs
Newport Healthcare maintains an active partnership with the Botvin LifeSkills Training (LST) High School program, a highly interactive, skills-based curriculum designed to promote positive health and personal development for youth in 9th and 10th grades. This evidence-based prevention program helps youth develop personal, interpersonal, and drug-resistance skills, so they can better navigate the social challenges of high school and of living independently A study in World of Preventative Medicine found that this social good program decreases drug abuse by up to 75 percent, and reduces violence in teens by up to 50 percent.
Donating to Our Communities
As a part of our corporate social responsibility (CSR) efforts, Newport Healthcare funds initiatives aligned with our Education and Youth Workforce Development strategies, in regions where our employees live and work, and beyond. Since 2016, Newport Academy has donated millions in free unfunded care to local and national organizations. One organization in particular is To Write Love On Her Arms, an organization that is accomplishing suicide prevention through awareness efforts and at no cost access to premiere treatment.
The Jason Foundation
One day in 1997, Clark Flatt’s youngest son, Jason, fell victim to the “silent epidemic” of youth suicide. Following this tragic event, Clark created the Jason Foundation and dedicated his life to suicide prevention, through educational and awareness programs that equip young people, parents, educators, and youth workers with the tools and resources to help identify and assist at-risk teens. Newport Academy is a Jason Foundation Pillar Affiliate, serving as a hub where parents, teachers, guidance counselors, students, churches, and other community organizations can obtain educational materials and learn about the foundation’s training programs.
