Everyone experiences worries and anxiety. The key is to learn how to make sure these don’t get in the way of doing things you care about!
The Mindfulness Groups offer a free 7-week psycho educational and support group for young adults ages 18-30 who experience anxiety. Participants learn healthy coping skills, connect with other young people in the community, and get support all in a safe and friendly environment. Programming is supervised by trained mental health professionals.
The group provides a safe, supportive environment where you can meet others who have had similar experiences and includes:
- Educational workshops about anxiety and other mental health related topics
- Practicing evidence-based mindfulness techniques during workshops, a proven tool to help manage anxiety
- An introduction to Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), an evidenced based therapy that uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies
- Take-home resources to help manage anxiety in between weekly meetings
Next Information Sessions: September 12th and 19th, 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
