"The Aspen Institute is a special place that provides a unique set of services for teens in crisis. We know that many young people are struggling with issues that resist quick diagnoses or simple treatment plans, and we understand the confusion and frustration that this can cause for the teens themselves and for their parents and other caregivers."

“I am writing to thank you for all you have done for my son and for our entire family. The only difficulty is finding the words to fully express my gratitude. Your unfailing devotion, your compassion and your understanding in the face of this very emotional situation were life-saving. That is how I describe what you do – you save people –for that there is no ample thanks.”
