Act & Adapt is a group-based, video-guided program that teaches youth how to cope with feelings of stress. Students will learn strategies to improve their mood and gain control by:


  • Solving problems that they have control over. 

  • Adapting to problems they do not have control over. 


Students meet for about an hour, once a week for about 10 weeks at their school.  


“Like I said, every time she goes to group she comes different. She's a different little girl. She's happier, she's smiling, she's giggling, she's joking around, she's eating fine.”

Deep muscle relaxation and quick calming can help decrease feelings of anger or anxiety, such as a racing heart, rapid or shallow breathing, tight muscles and more! Relaxing the body can help youth recognize that they have some control over their reaction to stress.
