"Youth Living Well" - new MDAO group
« on: August 19, 2016, 01:27:19 pm »
New group starting in September for youth and  young adults at the MDAO:

“Youth Living Well” is an open-ended group for youth and young adults aged 16-24 who are affected by mood disorders and related issues. Youth Living Well is an interpersonal skills-building group that focuses on relationship issues with immediate family members, close supporters, and significant others. Each group consists of an ice-breaker exercise, a peer support session focused on the topic of the week in the first half of the group, and a structured psychoeducational/active participation in group activities portion in the second half of the group.

Topics that will be covered include:
•   Stigma and self-stigma
•   Talking about mental health issues
•   What’s a relationship anyways?
•   Wants, needs, and rights
•   Assertiveness
•   Active listening
•   Boundaries
•   Responding to criticism

Meets the second and fourth Thursday of each month from 6pm-8pm at the MDAO (36 Eglinton Avenue West, Suite 602).

Please see the attached flyer for more details and feel free to share this information with anyone who may be interested.
