YMCA Mindfulness Group

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 YMCA 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 Session: January 24th and February 7th, 2019 6-8 p.m. at 1070 Townsite  Road Nanaimo
