Skill-building groups framed around evidence-based practices.
Be Kind to your Mind
This weekly group provides coping skills for dealing with the thoughts about ourselves that can hurt us. You will learn skills to be kinder to your mind so you can feel more confident!
Let’s pause to consider what came up as you read the word “mindful.” Notice what thoughts you may have, any reactions or feelings that arise, and what else you are noticing as you meditate on the word. You are being mindful of your experience! With practice, mindfulness can help us notice our thoughts, feelings, and reactions to things around us and within us.
A program designed to help students reflect on how stress affects them, where it comes from, and how they currently deal with it. Teens can share strategies that work for them while also learning new ones.
Ending the Silence
Teens learn how to recognize the early warning signs of mental illness and what to do if they or someone they know is exhibiting these signs. Ending the Silence instills a message of hope and recovery, and encourages teens to reduce stigma and end the silence surrounding mental illness.
This group is centered on learning about healthy relationships and discusses relationship red flags, ways to make your relationships healthier, and healthy communication skills.
Do you always feel the urge to problem-solve difficult moments that come your way? What if trying to solve the problem was not an option in those moments, or in our efforts to improve it, we made it harder for ourselves? Learning to identify what is within our control to change and when to practice radical acceptance sets us up to succeed in navigating life’s challenges.
Cool, Calm, Connected (C3)
In emotion regulation, we learn about what emotions do for us, why they show up, and how to better make sense of our private experiences. Let us connect on ways to widen our awareness of our emotions and learn ways to “cool” down.
