Empowering YOU

Welcome to Empowering YOU – BCRPA's youth mental wellness program

Empowering YOU is a free 10-week program that provides mental health education to help youth develop skills that enable them to cope with challenges in life. The ultimate aim of Empowering YOU is to help youth aged 14 to 17 to manage stress, moments of anxiety, mood challenges, and relationship difficulties through self-awareness, coping strategies (e.g., mindfulness), connecting with nature and physical  movement.

Each week participants will meet with two program leaders for two hours. The first hour is dedicated to learning and information. The second hour involves some physical movement and an opportunity to experience and practice the information and learning.
