It’s a high-stress and demanding life for teens today—social life, school, work, and family can easily become overwhelming for adolescents. Many teens are irritable, angry, in pain, and out of control. Without healthy interventions, they are prone to anxiety, depression, self-harm, and other psychological, and physiological issues.
Fact: 1 in 5 youth 13-18 years of age have or will have a serious mental illness.
Now that we recognize the problem lets discuss a solution.

You’ll learn the 8-session systematic approach to teaching teen’s mindfulness skills and tools for dealing with stress.
