Welcome to LIFT!
Long Island Families Together (LIFT) is a parent-governed, youth-guided, 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization. LIFT was created to raise awareness about children's mental health services on Long Island, and across New York State. Thanks to the efforts of many family members and professionals, LIFT is able to bring about positive changes to the lives of the families and youth we serve in our communities. Our website provides ways for you to learn more about LIFT and get involved. With your help, we can continue to make a difference. Thanks for visiting us. Your support is greatly appreciated.
