LifeAct recognizes the unique environment students are currently facing, and with heightened levels of stress and anxiety, it’s more important than ever for students to be proactive about their mental health. LifeAct has teamed up with our partners at Highland Springs Changes to offer a weekly chat where students will reflect on their mental health in a safe space. A new topic will be explored every week and then students will ask questions and get real-time feedback from Jenn Reed, a certified adolescent therapist.
Here’s how it works:
- Every Wednesday at 3 pm, we will explore a new topic for 30-40 minutes, during which our certified therapist will provide an educational lesson about the topic for ~10 minutes, and then spend the remaining time engaging with the group to ask questions, give ideas and tips, and share how everyone is coping.
- To ensure privacy, when students enter the meeting, microphones will be muted and video turned off, and the chat function will be limited, so that only the moderators (a therapist, and a LifeAct staff member) will be able to see the questions and comments being shared, and we will not use names when reflecting the questions to the group.
