Strengthening Your Mental Health and Fitness

Mindful Solutions
for Kids & Teens



The problem is clear:

Youth stress, anxiety, depression, and emotional dysregulation are at an all-time high.  Kids are struggling more than ever with distracted minds, distressed emotions, and disruptive behaviors.

Many students are struggling to manage the stressors in their daily post-pandemic lives.  They may feel overwhelmed by performance pressures at home and school, or by social pressures and toxic social media influences.  They often feel inadequate because it seems so hard to keep up or fit in - what I call "not enough" syndrome.

The solution?

It begins with strengthening your child's self-regulation skills - the ability to face adversity more clearly and calmly, so you can thoughtfully respond more than emotionally react.

The "Strengthening Mental Health" (SMH) youth groups are mindfulness-based therapeutic classes that do just that.  They integrate the latest neuroscience research on stress, mindfulness, and the brain to improve your child's emotional resilience and regulation.

Using our Mindful Solutions Approach, students will learn to harness the power of self-awareness and self-acceptance to strengthen their self-regulation skills.
More specifically, students will experience basic training in:

  • Focusing Your Attention
  • Calming Your Emotions
  • Controlling Your Impulses
  • Improving Your Sense of Self-Worth
  • and Being More Resilient

The Nuts & Bolts:

These after-school classes meet for 6 weeks, in-person, at our Mindful Village office in Boalsburg.

Emotional growth happens via live instruction, guided practices, supportive peer group discussions, and personal journaling.

Parents receive supplemental weekly parenting videos and tips, so you can know what we're covering in these classes, and support your child in using these skills.

FEE: $240 for all 6 therapeutic classes PLUS Student Workbook/Journal AND Weekly Parenting Tips
