Mindfulness is an incredible approach to helping individuals improve their overall wellness through awareness and acceptance with non-judgment. During this time of shelter-in-place and systemic racial inequality, our communities are hurting. With all of the additional challenges, frustrations, and feelings of isolation brought on by this, we are making it a priority to focus our efforts on sharing techniques and practices that can help bring peace and hope to our community. And this starts with working on ourselves as individuals.
The groups are FREE of charge, open to ages 15-25 (Groups are split based on the age of the participants.), and are held in a virtual zoom meeting room for the current time being (and subject to change to in-person as needed/allowed).
Based on a curriculum developed by Dr. Sam Himelstein, Mindfulness-Based Treatment (MBT) groups are provided to young people in our community that are working to overcome life challenges by improving on self-awareness, emotional well-being, and reducing substance use.
Participants learn to stay present, work through life’s stresses more effectively, employ coping strategies and be their authentic selves. The groups are FREE of charge, open to youth in our community, and are held in easily accessible locations.
Age requirement: 15-25 (Groups are split based on the age of the participants.)
