How We Help: Prevention Workshops

Our workshops are topic-specific and easy-to-implement in the school setting.

Workshops are intended for large groups of students and, in some cases, community members, providing essential education and support.

  • 77% of attendees rated our therapists 5 out of 5 upon completion of our LIFE workshop

  • Students reported a 20% increase in knowledge of stress management techniques upon completion of our Chill Skills workshop

Past Workshops

Suicide Prevention

Living Is For Everyone is an innovative suicide prevention program with a focus on student-driven support for life’s ups and downs. The L.I.F.E. program is co-facilitated by therapists and peer leaders with the intention of growing students’ confidence and self-worth. Regardless of what they struggle with, we set them on the path to living their best life.

Social Skill Development

PAUSE is a seven part program that covers:

  • Prioritization and Time Management
  • Communication, Boundaries, and Respect
  • Stress & Anxiety Management
  • Social Media
  • Motivation and Goal Setting
  • Vaping and Substance Use
  • Family and Culture

Each topic is addressed during one classroom session and can be implemented throughout the school year.

Stress Management

Chill Skills is a stress management workshop that teaches students how the brain and body respond to stress, the impact stress has on mental health, and how to develop the skills needed to manage it. Chill Skills is easy to implement in any classroom setting and customizable for any student population.

WAY

Due to rising concerns over the use of vape products by students, we created an educational program with a focus on prevention. The presentation covers the essentials about vaping, it’s impact on a young person’s development, legal implications, and resources for quitting. This program can also be modified for families and community members seeking more information about the health impacts of vaping.

And More!

Parent/Community workshops are offered at request on a variety of topics. Mending Matters co-facilitates workshops with students to speak on issues faced by their generation.
