Partnering to Offer Teen Group in Carroll

Updated: May 7

Teen Talk, a new educational support group for 9th to 12th graders aims to reduce the stigma of mental health by giving teens the opportunity to learn, improve healthy coping skills and increase positive thinking. Facilitators will include therapists from our Carroll location, Whitney Cue, tLMHC, CADC and Tina Zanders, LMSW, along with Alex Gillard, EM, DBU, social worker at St. Anthony. Topics will include vulnerabilities, anxiety/stress, depression, healthy relationships/communication, developing coping skills, and suicide prevention.


This is a six-week series on consecutive Wednesdays. Meetings begin June 19 and will be held at St. Anthony in the St. Rose Room from 11 am – 12:30 pm. Lunch will be provided.


The three facilitators will provide educational resources, allow teens to openly discuss topics and challenge any negative thinking. Focus will be on helping teens learn positive statements and healthy coping skills.

 

The group will be free to members thanks to our agency’s involvement with Carroll County Youth Behavioral Health Consortium, which received a grant award from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) targeted at helping youth from Carroll County.

 

To register your teen or ask questions, contact info@cathchar.com or 712.252.4547.

 

A 4-week, 6th -8th grade series is also being planned. Going forward, groups for these two ages will be offered twice annually, alternating each quarter.
