A Note From the Program Therapist, Lisa:

From my counselling experience, including volunteer work (from 1994 to recent), teens rely on each other to obtain advice and guidance about life issues. They also rely on the Internet which also does not provide accurate info. 

More and more teen girls have been asking for counselling. In these sessions with me, they have been seeking help and advice for both themselves and problems that their friends and peers are experiencing.
Our mission of the Human Strong Teen Girls Program, is to provide a safe space that our teen girls so they can obtain TRUSTED & PROFESSIONAL mental health information and support for real life problems that they and their peers are facing. 

The Human Strong 13-Week Teen Girls' Program

The virtual group format is easy and accessible for teens to attend and fit into their schedules. They also can attend from the comfort of their own home, so more comfortable for many teens.

Our private, online program can provide opportunities for peer learning and sharing that has been tremendous, and has both augmented and enhanced the agenda.

Program Begins Thursday, March 24th, 6-7:30 pm and runs weekly for 13 weeks in a private online group.
