WillThrive Group Therapy Project

Please read the information below and sign-up! Here is information about our partners in this project!

Vida Clinic: Vida Clinic partners with organizations and individuals to provide a range of high quality clinical mental health services that includes individual, family, group counseling; teletherapy services; consultation services for professional organizations including schools and culture-building experiences.

Seek Institute: We are a non-profit organization dedicated to mental health and social justice. We connect individuals and communities to culturally competent mental health services, with a focus on creating access for groups that typically face barriers to care. The formation of this non-profit was driven by the following beliefs:

  1. every individual deserves the same opportunity to receive quality, evidence-based mental health care,
  2. mental health is a community responsibility, and
  3. wellness grows out of trusting relationships.

Description of the Program

Group Therapy for Teens Coping with Anxiety and Depression

  • 12-week virtual group therapy for teens ages 14-18 (9th-12th grade) starting in February. Provided after school hours. 
  • This group will be a chance for teens to connect with others, process and build effective coping skills in a supportive setting.

Purpose

Group therapy helps teens build practical skills while also providing a safe place for support from others where they feel they are not alone in their struggles.

Developmentally, peers are extremely important to teens and group is a great way to receive positive support and connection while building healthy skills to improve relationships, manage mood and emotions and support feelings of improved well-being and life satisfaction.

Steps for Consideration

  1. Complete the contact form
  2. Complete the intake process once contacted by a representative from Vida Clinic

Welcome to our initial contact form for consideration in the WillThrive Teen Group Therapy. This is a pilot program lasting 12 weeks and will be provided at no cost to the selected individuals.

Please complete the information below as a first step to allow Vida Clinic to reach out with additional program information. 

Before group therapy begins, a comprehensive clinical intake will occur with a Vida Clinic therapist. At intake, recommendations for treatment will be made. Services funded by WillThrive include a Vida Clinic intake session (includes caregiver(s) and teen) and participation in a 12-week adolescent group therapy program.

Individual services might also be recommended in addition to group therapy. If a family chooses to also engage in individual therapy and/or family therapy with Vida Clinic, your insurance will be billed for those additional services. 

This program was made possible through a grant from the Tomblin Family Foundation and donors like you. Thank you!
