Series aims to help Darien middle schoolers cope with anxiety
DARIEN — Minding Our Minds in Challenging Times, a free workshop series from The Depot, Darien’s Youth Center, geared toward all middle school-aged kids will be held Thursdays from 4:30 to 6 p.m. beginning Oct. 15, Dec. 17. Jan. 14, Feb. 25, March 11, April 8, May 13 and June 3.
The series will consist of group discussions, hands-on projects and an online video series offered after school. Workshops will be held in a socially distant way, or if needed, virtually. Workshops are being run by a team of children’s mental health and educational professionals from Silver Hill Hospital.
Topics include: managing stress and anxiety, building healthy habits and routines, and balancing digital life. Due to the nature of workshops space is limited to 12 students.
This program will be supported by a grant from The John and Ethel Kashulon Foundation.
