This is a teen anxiety and depression group taking place in person at Mind Therapy Clinic Corte Madera location from 4pm to 5:20pm on Tuesdays.

The group is available to teens between 13-17 years old who are struggling with symptoms of anxiety and depression that have been getting in the way of living a full life. The group is a combination of skill based learning and practice and open space to process experiences with mental health struggles.

Group members are encouraged to participate by sharing about their anxiety and/or depression and building connections with other members. This group will be great for teens that are motivated to learn skills to help alleviate their symptoms. Group will serve as an adjunct to clients’ individual therapy. Group members are required to have an outside (or MTC) therapist prior to the start of group.

This group is facilitated by Betsy Thompson, LPCC and Diandra Hilton, PsyD.

Every human on the planet will suffer grief. However, each of us will grieve and process loss in our own way. How can we best support a grieving friend or family member? What are some practices we can develop so that grief becomes an integrated process in our lives and not just an “event”?

National Grief Awareness Day gives us an opportunity to reflect on these questions. It’s observed annually on August 30. Dr. Mary Lamia will explain the science behind bereavement and to convey an understanding of how we adapt to death as a part of life.

Grief Isn’t Something to Get Over

Can we simply “get over” loss? This training explains the science behind bereavement and conveys an understanding of how we adapt to death as a part of life.

  • The concept of continued bonds, the importance of triggering events, and how shame operates in grief will be better understood by participants.
