When feelings of worry, stress and anxiety become overwhelming, Worry Warriors is here to help. Worry Warriors gives youth ages 7-11 and 12-15 the tools they need to effectively cope with stress.
Anxiety is a normal reaction that many people, including children and teens, experience. Anxiety and stress are important because they prepare us to act quickly in the face of difficult situations and help us learn in new ones. They are a common response to situations of uncertainty, trouble, trauma or feeling unprepared. However for some youths and teens, feelings of worry, stress and anxiety can become overwhelming. These feelings may interfere with day to day life and activities.
Teens and tweens that exhibit the following behaviours may benefit from Worry Warriors.
- Avoiding social situations
- Difficulty sleeping and/or concentrating
- Excessive worrying about every day matters
- Difficulty navigating transitions and change
Worry Warriors helps participants learn:
- how to identify anxiety and other difficult emotions
- how our bodies respond to stress and worry
- how to face fears
- problem solving skills
Worry Warriors is offered on a sliding fee scale. The fee for this program will be assessed after you have registered and have gone through the screening process.
