  • How to recognize when someone needs help

  • How anxiety can change people’s behavior
  • The best ways to offer support
  • The warning signs of suicide

Workshop for Teens

Four in 10 teenagers report they feel "persistently sad or hopeless," according to a recent CDC survey. Our new workshop series for teens can help young people struggling with these kinds of feelings.

The online workshops are geared toward helping teens understand the causes and consequences of emotions. Participants will learn how to turn off self-judgement, manage relationships better, and regulate their ups and downs -- with the goal of finding more meaning and purpose in life.

Mental health counselor Zeinab Moussa, M.A., LLPC, will lead the workshop. Zeinab specializes in facilitating dialogue about feelings and emotions. She has children of her own and understands the negative impact COVID-19 has had on the mental health of teens and young adults.

To participate, all you need is an Internet connection to Zoom, paper and pencil, and an open mind.

All sessions are free of charge. Click here to REGISTER
