Help for kids and teens living with mental health challenges.The Kidshop/Teenshop program is a weekly Saturday morning program designed for school-age youth who are living with a mental health diagnosis or who are living with a loved one with a mental health diagnosis. This program shares facts about mental illness and helps the youth develop coping skills in the home, school and community while forming lasting friendships with peers who are living similar circumstances. These workshops are currently being offered virtually. All workshops are free, safe and confidential places to talk things through with others who understand your experience, and they are led by people who have had similar experiences.
- The workshops are 2-hour virtual sessions held each Saturday morning from 10:00am – 12:00 noon running from January 23 through April 17, 2021.
- A KidShop/TeenShop invitation will be sent out each week announcing the subject of the week, the link to join us, the name(s) of the guest specialists and our Volunteer Facilitators who will be joining us.
- The sessions include educational activities that separate fact from myths when it comes to the stigma attached to having a mental health diagnosis; engaging the youth in role play which helps to express how one feels about what is going on around them.
- We ask parents to encourage their child(ren) to participate in this inspiring learning series
