Youth Support Drop-in

May 24, 2023

Teens who are blind or partially sighted are invited to participate in our monthly Virtual Drop-in Youth Support Group on the 4th Wednesday of each month. The next group meeting will take place on April 26 from 4:30 – 6:00 PM.

This Drop-in Youth Support group is a place where you can connect with other teens who are blind or partially sighted in a safe and comfortable space. We know that when you connect with a community of peers who understand, you no longer feel alone.

What to expect during the group:
Each month we’ll begin with introductions and a check-in on how we are feeling. Next we’ll ask if anybody has a topic or challenge they would like to talk about that day. In addition to talking through our challenges, we’ll also practice some coping strategies including mindfulness, breathing exercises, noticing and naming our feelings, and self-compassion. We’ll finish each session with a Check-Out and a homework suggestion.
