A major barrier to full recovery is the mental and psychological experiences that people impacted by burn injuries have to overcome. Many do not understand, but there is a strong community through The Children's Burn Foundation that meets to support one another. Facilitated by train professionals, we provide access to a unique community that allows burn survivors to speak openly about their experiences and be completely understood by peers.

Teen burn survivors find camaraderie in our program known by the acronym YABSS: Young Adult Burn Survivors & Supporters. YABSS support each teen's transition into adulthood, encouraging them to reach their full potential and embrace a bright and unlimited future.
