Gryphon Weekend Workshops

Our FREE weekend workshops for teens explores topics including thoughts & emotions, stress & coping, understanding depression & suicide, healthy relationships, and digital safety. We do this using arts-based activities, videos & discussions, and games to allow youth to engage with the content as well as one another. Our main focus of the day is to provide youth with knowledge, resources, and practical coping skills that they can use to manage everyday stressors, cope with difficult feelings, and maintain healthy relationships with peers and family.

There is no charge for attending these workshops. Lunch and snacks are provided.

This workshop is free to any youth. To register click on the registration/referral form.
