Worry Warrior Program

Teens Ages 14+

Worry Warriors Program is a 6-week Youth Stress Program for ages 14-18

Everyone feels stressed from time to time.

We can’t always control the things that cause stress, but we can control how we cope with stress.

Like adults, youth feel stress too. Youth feel stressed for the same reasons as adults—they have a lot to deal with! Day-to-day demands like going to school, making friends, fitting in, and getting along with siblings are stressful.

Youth may feel more stress at certain times, such as starting school, moving, experiencing changes in their body, or coping with illness or loss in the family.

Youth may have different ways of showing and dealing with stressors in their lives. For instance, they may complain of stomach aches, have difficulty sleeping, act out, be irritable or angry, or withdraw from others when stressed.

In these sessions, we will teach different tactics they may find helpful including:

Healthy Living: A healthy lifestyle, including healthy eating, physical activity, and good sleep habits, are good for everyone.

Healthy Thinking: Healthy thinking means thinking in a balanced way, and it’s very important when we deal with stress. Learn how to change unhelpful thoughts to helpful thoughts.

Problem-solving: Working your way through problems is a helpful way to manage stress.

Fun, relaxation, and time for friends: It is always important to know that they are not alone. We will spend time practicing relaxation exercises like mindfulness, visualization, or deep breathing.

Each session is closed for the 6-weeks to allow the group to feel comfortable with each other. Based on the group, we will choose a theme for the 6-week session. A new session will open up to allow more youth to join.
