CANCELLED – Teen Drop-in Group

Unfortunately, we need to cancel this program. We will try to offer it again in the future.

Being a teen today can be hard! Social media, drugs and addiction, varying beliefs, mental health and feeling pulled in different directions are just some of the things we face. There are a lot of things going on in teenage life, but you may not always have a place to talk about them. If you or a friend know what this is like, these conversations are just for you! You don’t need to do anything to prepare for them, it’s totally free, and you attend as many (4 in total) or as few as you like! All conversations are open to anyone between 14 and 19 years of age.
