Breaking BARRiers (formerly Stressed Teens)

RESET/Family Preservation & Family Reunification Program Services

Stressed Teens has had a makeover!  Now dubbed “Breaking BARRiers”, Touchstone Family Association’s Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction for Teens (MBSR-T) program for youth ages 13-19 is a no-cost group for adolescents who are struggling with stress, anxiety, anger, and/or needing emotional regulation. This program utilises mindfulness and CBT in a group setting to develop self-awareness, self-regulation and coping skills for adolescents. 

The next Breaking BARRiers group will start mid-October, 2021.   Based on need, we will assess during the interview process for the group, if this group will run in-person or online.   Breaking BARRiers will run for 9 consecutive weeks, from approximately October 13 to December 8, 2021.   Time and day will be flexible based on client need (Tuesdays or Wednesdays from 3:30-5:30).  Referrals are currently being accepted by filling out a referral form; this group is open to any youth residing in Richmond.  Once a referral is received, we will contact the youth directly to set up an interview with them prior to the group start date.
