April 13 @ 6:00pm

Register for Military Teen Mindfulness Webinar

Military teens are high-risk for feelings of isolation, depression and anxiety – with frequent moves, school transitions and worry about deployed parents – all on top of the regular teenage stress in a rapidly changing world. This webinar will teach teens ages 12-17 about the effect of trauma and chronic stress on the brain through a hands-on art project (materials provided) and teach skills for mindfulness activities that promote greater connection between thoughts, feelings and bodily sensations. This webinar is the first of four presented as part of the Cohen Clinic’s partnership with the Hollister Confidence Project to address youth mental health.
