The YMCA-YWCA Y Mind Groups are a free, weekly psychoeducational support group for teens 13-18 and young adults 18-30 experiencing stress, worries and anxiety. 


- Learn healthy coping skills through Mindfulness and the ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) process to manage their anxiety.

- Connect with other young people and receive support all in a safe and supportive community environment. 

- Receive tools and support for those experiencing mild to moderate anxiety.

Programming is supervised by two trained facilitators (one or both are clinical counsellors) and are available to young adults and teens. 

Y Mind Teen (13-18) Is looking to do community groups - Location and dates, TBD. Some schools, as well as a number of Y and community partner sites will be offering these groups this winter both in person and online.
