Minding Your Mind

Minding Your Mind’s primary objective is to provide mental health education to adolescents, teens, and young adults, as well as parents, teachers, and school administrators. We strive to encourage conversations about these issues that may be inspired by our presence yet continue long after our programs have taken place. The programs we have developed meet a variety of needs, all of which support our overall goal of reducing the stigma and destructive behaviors often associated with mental health challenges. These efforts move away from crisis-based response to prevention through contact-based education in a school or community setting.
This 90-minute program opens with a Minding Your Mind clinician discussing the signs and symptoms of the mental health issues most prevalent in adolescents through young adulthood, and to know the difference from typical teenage behavior. The Young Adult Speaker adds a real-life story that illustrates the information from our clinician, transforming it all into relatable experiences.
