The Michigan Stay Well program presents a workshop series for teenagers.
Saturday sessions from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.
Four in 10 teenagers report they feel “persistently sad or hopeless,” according to a recent CDC survey. Our 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.
To participate, all you need is an internet connection to Zoom, paper and pencil and an open mind.
Remaining Fall Sessions:
Saturday, Oct. 1 at 2 p.m. — Practical Coping
Saturday, Oct. 8 at 2 p.m. — Moving Forward
The Michigan Stay Well program presents a free interactive workshop series
for parents and their kids.
It takes time for children to develop emotional intelligence—the ability to perceive, understand and manage emotions. Parents can play a key role in this development by helping their child learn the words and feelings associated with various emotions. This series of four online workshops paves the way by involving family members in creative art projects centered around identity, self-awareness and emotional expression. The workshops will be led by clinical mental health counselor Zeinab Moussa, who has children of her own and loves to get families talking, especially while making art! Her professional background includes providing behavioral and mental health services, special education and art education.
To participate, all you need is an internet connection to Zoom and some white paper, scissors and crayons, markers, or pen/pencil.
