WHAT IS ACT & ADAPT?

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.

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.
