WORKSHOPS

YouthWell hosts monthly quaranTEEN for teens (7th grade through college-age) and Community Connect Workshops that give youth and those working with youth tools for practicing self-care in order to build resilience so that we are better equipped to cope with stress and challenging situations.

Workshops encourage parents, youth, teachers, and the community to work together to raise awareness and eliminate the stigma around mental health through education by promoting connection and the power of listening while providing tools to practice self-care​.
