A community initiative in understanding and destigmatizing mental health in children, youth, and families.
Using therapeutic activity, self-reflection, and developmental theory, we aim to make mental health and resilience mentionable and manageable for everyone.
How it Works
Choose from 5 module topics. Each module is a 3-hour presentation, mixed with teaching, activity, and conversation. It will be tailored to your group (school, business, church, non-profit).
If you need a venue we can also provide this along with a meal for your group.
To book fill out the form below.
Each topic, regardless of age or group, is written and delivered by our passionate and well-versed presenters through the lens and understanding of cognitive, social, and psychosocial development.
These theories, in practice, create the foundation for communication, learning, and emotional safety that is imperative to the fostering of a healthy self and community.
Therapeutic activity is the basis of our approach. This allows the participants to not only understand the concept but experience it in real-time.
Each group receives an individually catered experience based on module choice and group paradigm. Our presenters take time to understand and know each group/ individual to create a unique and personal program.
