My name is Ryan Delaney, and I am the man spearheading this August West Wellness project!
This project was born out of the frustration of seeing first hand the plentiful gaps in mental health services for teenagers and young adults. From working in the family based and BHRS sector of mental health services for the last three years, I have seen a great need for anger management classes and social skills workshops. I have watched my families search and search for services that just do not exist in the local area.
“Be the change you want to see in the world” has been my personal mantra for a long time. Inspired by said mantra, I have decided to strike out on my own, and work to provide the mental health services I feel are lacking in the Mon Valley and East Pittsburgh area.
We are currently offering outpatient therapy for individuals, couples and families. As we continue to expand, I want to add group therapy, workshops, lecture series, and advocacy services.
I will also be sponsoring “Create a Art” nights, yoga classes, drum circles, and movie nights among other social events as AWW continues to grow.
So, if you have read this far, please continue to look around and see if there is something you like. This project is still in its infancy, so remember to check back and see how much we have grown!
Enjoy the day!
