Goals of the group

The goal of this group is to help adolescents become more emotionally resilient. We will aim at offering a non-judgmental space for the participants to voice the struggles that they may face in expressing and understanding their emotions, thoughts and themselves. From here we will develop healthy ways to stand back up and keep moving ahead.

Who is it for?

  • I'm a secret introvert and was afraid I'd keep my guard up and not share. But, as folks started to be vulnerable, it made me want to share, and at the end of 75 minutes, I thought, 'That was really fun!'

  • I felt energised and relieved. My group helped me think differently—and clear some hurdles—that I had in my mind.

What happens in a group session?

While the format can vary as per topic, here’s a flow that most sessions follow

Check In. Participants check-in with each others' feelings and answer the prompt given by the facilitator if any.

Conversation. Your facilitator will guide the group in a free-flowing conversation—with the goal of sharing openly, talking honestly, and deep emotional connection.

Check Out. Participants share what they're taking away from the session.

What am I going to get out of this?

Participants say that they feel heard, understood, more in control, and a feeling that you’ve got people rooting for you. By talking about your emotions and what's going on in your life, you'll realise that you're not alone and get ideas for how to improve your situation.
