Do you have a teen who is stressed?

Struggling with the pressures of teen life?

Feels anxious, distracted, or overwhelmed?


The Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction for Teens Program will help teens 13-18 years of age learn simple yet effective mindfulness practices for managing stress, improving quality of life, and finding stillness and resiliency. 

Our teens today are facing greater mental health challenges than ever before. Whether sensory overload from electronic devices, cyberbullying, trauma from COVID 19, feeling socially isolated, or academic and social pressures. Teens are in dire need of education in self-care and a strong community of support, now more than ever. 

This research-based course will allow your teen to develop mindfulness skills to reduce stress and improve mental health.

Each session includes age-appropriate discussions, activities, and opportunities to practice mindfulness skills in a group setting.


Over the course of the series, teens will engage in deep relaxation, mindfulness, walking meditation, mindful movement, and everyday mindfulness activities. This course offers teens an opportunity to practice mindfulness in a supportive environment where everyone is accepted and welcome.

Your teen will become empowered to take control of their well-being, increase their self-esteem, and live life with renewed hope and enthusiasm.

Some of the benefits of MBSR-T include:
