Mental Health Help – Summer

The following programs are available in Montague this summer, Souris youth are encouraged to attend.

CBT-m: Starts August 1st A four-week psychoeducational group which helps people cope with their anxiety and depression. The material and skills provided focus on negative thinking and how we can challenge those thoughts, working toward a more realistic thinking (not necessarily positive, but balanced). Sessions are roughly two hours, once a week for 4 consecutive weeks. Age range for youth is between 14-18 years old, maturity level depending.

Monday July 8 from 1:30-3:30pm for 8 weeks (ends August 26)
Changeways: An eight-week group for people who experience low mood/depression and is also helpful for symptoms of anxiety, as well. It is a skills-based group to learn how to better manage, cope, and understand depression and anxiety. There is a strong emphasis on group discussion in each session. The group is a lot of work because progress is reliant on the work done outside of session, using the skills and goals talked about in session. There is a heavy focus on in-session goal setting and then working towards these goals outside of session. The two biggest expectations are attendance and working on the home practice exercises between sessions. Sessions are two hours long, once a week for 8 consecutive weeks. Age range for youth is between 14-18 years old, maturity level depending.

Youth Seeking Safety: Wednesday July 3 from 10:00 am-11:30 pm for 8 weeks (ends August 21) Seeking Safety: A psychotherapy treatment for PTSD and substance abuse comprised of numerous topics which are evenly divided among cognitive, behavioural, and interpersonal domains, with each addressing a safe coping skill relevant to both disorders. Each topic is designed to be independent of the others. What is not part of this treatment is 1) an exploration of past trauma and 2) interpretive psychodynamic work.

Sessions are roughly 1.5 hours long and will run once a week for 8 consecutive weeks. Age range for youth is between 14-18 years old, maturity level depending.

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR): A group that has been proven to have significant therapeutic effects for those experiencing stress, anxiety, high blood pressure, depression, chronic pain, migraines, heart conditions, diabetes, and other ailments. Participants typically report feeling more alive, more “in-tune” with themselves and with others. The course is highly experiential and the daily practice is perhaps the most important component. Your body and mind are the most complex tools in the universe. It takes time and practice to use them effectively and harmoniously.

Through this MBSR course, participants will learn skills that can increase their ability to:
– Cope with stress, pain, and the challenges of everyday life
– Deal with difficult events with more grace and composure
– Be fully present and alive in this moment

Sessions are two hours long, once a week for 8 consecutive weeks. Age range for youth is between 14-18 years old, maturity level depending.

*ALL DEPEND ON NUMBERS, NEED A MINIMUM OF 8 YOUTH CONFIRMED BEFORE WE CAN RUN A GROUP.*
