Heads Up and "Talk It Out" are weekly concurrent groups for teens between the ages of 14-17 who are working through emotional, mental health or substance use challenges, and their parents. These groups will feature guest speakers and participants are welcome to drop in any time, weekly attendance is not required. At the Heads Up group, teens will learn about successful, sustainable recovery and resilience; how to develop strategies and tools to manage stress; and how to bend but not break when anxieties arise. Attendees will have opportunities to engage with each other, enjoy leisure activities and outings, and snacks. At the concurrent Talk It Out session, parents will discuss ideas on how to help their teen live their healthiest, fullest lives in the aftermath of trauma or through times of emotional distress. Guest speakers will offer parents ideas on how to discuss tough issues and offer tips on how to break communications barriers with their teen. Groups are held each Thursday from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Merrifield Center in Room 3-332.
