Y Mind Teen

Y Mind Teen is a free seven-week mental wellness program delivered across the Halifax Regional Municipality. This program supports teens ages 13 to 18 who are experiencing symptoms of mild-to-moderate anxiety or stress. Participants learn and practice evidence-based strategies to help manage anxiety.

Y Mind Teen is led by trained mental wellness facilitators and gives teens the chance to connect with peers who are experiencing similar thoughts and feelings. All participants receive a free book, workbook and a YMCA membership to the John W. Lindsay YMCA for a full year.

We will be running in-person Y Mind Teen programs this November 2022 at the Community YMCA. In January 2023, we are excited to launch Y Mind Teen at the John W. Lindsay YMCA. Attendance at a group or individual information session is required to join the program.
