LGBTQ+
Teens & Parents Mindfulness Support Group
What
Are you or do you know someone who is an LGBTQ+ teen or friend? Learning and practicing Mindfulness can help to better manage stress or worry, improve self-esteem and self-image, increase ability to focus, be less distracted and live more fully in the present moment, increase overall well-being, and bring more peace and happiness into your life and relationships while increasing your community of support by connecting with other teens sharing your resilience, strengths, creativity, and resourcefulness.
Where & When
The Center for Mindfulness & Wellness, located at 7002 Camp Hill Rd. in Ft. Washington, PA (on the edge of Flourtown) is forming an ongoing Mindfulness Support Group for LGBTQ+ teens and parents. The group will meet on the last Thursday of each month from 6:00-7:00 pm. (NOTE: Parents are welcome to meet together in one of our waiting rooms to share resources and support each other as well while waiting for their teen.)
Cost
Because this is an underserved population placed at greater risk due to the stress of managing adolescence with a marginalized identity amidst a heteronormative culture, the goal is to provide this opportunity to learn Mindfulness to decrease risk, promote greater wellness, and share strengths for LGBTQ+ teens and parents at a reasonable cost of $10 per session per teen, no charge for parents when teen is attending. (NOTE: please consider sponsoring an LGBTQ+ teen or friend to attend to help keep this group sustainable for all who are interested.)

To Enroll
Contact Jesse Frechette, LCSW (Mindfulness Teacher, School Counselor, & Mindfulness-Based Psychotherapist) at 215-680-1944 or email me at jesse@centermindful.org. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Please share this information with others in the greater Philadelphia and suburban areas so we can help reduce risk and promote wellness for LGBTQ+ teens and parents. Thank You and Peaceful Wishes.
