Pasadena Mental Health Center (PMHC) will host
its fifth annual Fête – Turning a New Leaf on Saturday, April 28, 5 p.m. at a private estate in Altadena, recognizing Commander John E. Perez on behalf of the Pasadena Police Department. Proceeds from Fête – Turning a New Leaf will benefit PMHC and the life-changing
services it provides to children and families who look for emotional support and guidance during difficult periods in their lives. Tickets are available at $75 per person and include appetizers, wines and jazz.
PMHC will honor Commander Perez on behalf of the Pasadena Police Department for its partnership which focuses on the Youth Accountability Program and works with juveniles who have committed a minor first criminal offense. The program provides youth with an opportunity to take accountability for their actions and helps them receive a fresh start towards a successful future. Included in the program are individual, family and group therapy for youth and their families, as well as parenting classes. In
2011, 80% of youth and 81% of Youth Accountability Program clients made gains toward clinical goals. PMHC and the Pasadena Police Department have been community partners for more than 10 years and its partnership has been successful in keeping youth out of the criminal justice system.
