“The Living Room Dialogue” Youth Wellness Series
Wednesday, April 7, 2021
We had an exciting launch of a new series of Wellness Workshops for the youth in our community!
The Living Room Dialogue – Youth Wellness Series is geared towards helping youngsters deal with the challenges they face in a healthy manner. The participants got the opportunity to seek advice and learn coping strategies from our Mental Health Advisor, Sheikh Yassir Fazaga, and our new Mental Health Coordinator, Noor Alhuda Aljawad.
It was hosted by our Youth Program Coordinator, Lilly Ahmed, and our AmeriCorps Member and Mental Health Case Manager, Aliza Ahmed. The attendees were taken through a self-care wheel to help them learn how to augment their emotional, mental, and physical health. Additionally, they will be taught positive affirmations and introduced to a self-soothing toolkit.
