Yoga & MINDFULNESS FOR MENTAL HEALTH FOR TEENS and At-RISk YOUTH
Working with teens to help deal with stress and life’s pressures
Hong Kong has one of the highest rates of teen suicide across Asia. Children in Hong Kong are predisposed at an earlier age to mental health problems such as anxiety and depression. Stress is a problem with far-reaching consequences. Our teens and youth need help to manage stress and help face personal challenges.
Here To Be is a 12-week yoga and mindfulness program, targeted at supporting teens and at-risk youth as they navigate through intense life pressures with school, friends, family and transition to independence. The program emphasises physical, mental and emotional wellbeing, empowering teens to face personal challenges, go beyond self-limiting beliefs and express themselves in a non-judgemental space.
