ILIA's Youth Crisis Line Impact

BALTIMORE - Dec. 21, 2023 - PRLog -- The recent Dar Us Salaam Annual Fundraiser dinner at Eleanor Roosevelt High School illuminated the impact of Islamic Leadership Institute of America's, Youth Crisis Line (YCL). With a dynamic presence among the 150 attendees aged 10 to 17, the program successfully engaged with 24 individuals seeking support.

ILIA, a champion of inclusivity, underscores its unwavering commitment to serving the community without discrimination. The Youth Crisis Line (YCL), an integral part of ILIA's outreach, stands as a beacon of accessible support, designed to provide essential assistance without screening callers or imposing eligibility criteria.

At the event, Br Asim, a devoted advocate for Youth Crisis Line (YCL), passionately shared insights into the program while representing the YCL. Facilitating meaningful interactions with 24 kids, he guided their responses to three thought-provoking questions on cards placed at the table. These questions covered a spectrum of topics, from their concerns to coping strategies. Br Asim focused on creating a supportive environment, highlighting the importance of open communication, and the kids responded with enthusiasm, eager to share their thoughts.

YCL offers a secure space for support through various channels, including text, calls, Instagram, Twitter, email, and non-real-time web postings. The organization is actively working towards introducing real-time anonymous texting for more immediate assistance.

ILIA's Youth Crisis Line transcends being a mere service; it embodies a commitment to fostering mental well-being among the youth. By actively engaging with the community and dismantling barriers, ILIA strives to encourage open conversations about mental health.
