An event every 4 weeks that begins at 3:30 pm on Tuesday, repeating until February 13, 2024


This 4-week research-based online group will allow youth to develop mindfulness skills to reduce stress, and improve mental health. They will become empowered to take control of their well-being, increase self-esteem, and live life with renewed hope and enthusiasm.

Stressed Teens invites and celebrates human diversity in all forms regardless of race, color, ethnicity, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, ability, personal appearance, or religious/spiritual affiliation. All people are welcome and encouraged to be a part of our groups.

Stressed Teens disseminates the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction for Teens Program (MBSR-T) in a variety of settings. We teach mindfulness-based interventions and provide skills for those pre-teens through latter adolescence. MBSR-T can improve teen’s functioning and quality of living socially, physically, and psychologically. MBSR-T is adapted from the adult MBSR program by Jon Kabat-Zinn.

Other Mindfulness Approaches

MBSR-T is an adaptation of the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program for adults (Kabat-Zinn, 1982, 1990, 2013). The MBSR-T intervention is closely related to the traditional MBSR program created by Kabat-Zinn and colleagues. The MBSR-T program is meant to be a program to use with adolescents and young adults versus the traditional MBSR program for adults. Like MBSR, MBSR-T is based on secular adaptations of mindfulness practices with roots in Eastern meditation traditions. MBSR-T is also strongly influenced by mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (Segal, Williams, & Teasdale, 2002, 2013). Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) practices are imbedded within and throughout Stressed Teens services. To learn more about SEL: https://www.stressedteens.com/inspiration-and-need.
