The Comox Valley Family Services Association is pleased to be partnering with YMCA-YWCA of Vancouver Island to bring the YMCA Youth Mindfulness Groups to the Comox Valley.

Intake Information: January 2020 

The local YMCA Youth Mindfulness Group offers a free 7-week psychoeducational and support group for young adults ages 18-30 who experience anxiety.

Participants learn healthy coping skills, connect with other young people in the community, and get support all in a safe and friendly environment.

The group provides a safe, supportive environment where youth can meet others in a virtual setting who have had similar experiences and includes educational workshops about anxiety and other mental health-related topics: practicing evidence-based mindfulness techniques during workshops, a proven tool to help manage anxiety; an introduction to 'Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT)', an evidence-based therapy that uses acceptance; and mindfulness strategies 'Take-home resources' to help manage anxiety in between weekly meetings.

If anxiety is impacting your life and preventing you from doing what you want or need to do, this group can help support you. Join us to learn mindfulness techniques, get helpful tools and resources, and meet other like-minded young adults.
