Y Mind and Mind Medicine Expansion

Y Mind and Mind Medicine Expansion

The project proposes to scale up and expand the YMCA BC’s Y Mind and Mind Medicine evidence based early intervention and prevention programs to 28 communities in six provinces. Programs support teens (age 13-18) and youth (18-30) experiencing mild to moderate anxiety in learning effective coping skills and improving their overall well-being using principles of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Mindfulness techniques. The Mind Medicine program is provided by indigenous serving community organizations; who use the Y Mind curriculum with the freedom and flexibility to bring connection to culture.
