Centerstone Unveils New and Improved Resource Website for Parents, Teens and Educators

WhoYouWant2Be.org features enhanced navigation and new video content

Nashville, Tenn. – Centerstone, Tennessee’s leading not-for-profit provider of community-based mental health and addiction services, today announced that it has launched an updated version of its resource website, WhoYouWant2Be.org.

A resource for teens, parents and educators, WhoYouWant2Be.org is a project of Centerstone’s Prevention Services. The website is an interactive tool that helps teens and their families tackle tough subjects including substance abuse, depression, bullying and teen pregnancy. It also provides helpful tips on goal-setting and effective communication.

“We know a lot of people turn to the internet to find information these days – especially when it comes to tough topics like how to talk to your teen about avoiding risky behaviors and situations,” said Doris Vaughan, Director of Centerstone’s Prevention Services. “WhoYouWant2Be.org is designed to meet teens and parents where they are, providing guidance, accurate information and thought-provoking conversation starters when you need them most.”

Centerstone first launched WhoYouWant2Be.org in 2008. The website’s first major overhaul since its creation, its new features include an improved navigation system, an updated look and additional critical resources. In addition to the revamped website, WhoYouWant2Be now has a presence on the popular social networking websites Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

The updated website was unveiled in conjunction with six web exclusive videos. The videos are part of a campaign for Be in Charge, Centerstone’s teen pregnancy prevention program available to 26 Middle Tennessee counties. Be in Charge is funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Adolescent Health.

Centerstone’s Prevention Services provides educational programs to empower children, teens and their families to make positive decisions when faced with common, real-life issues such as alcohol and drug abuse, depression, bullying, teen pregnancy and more.
