When someone is struggling with their mental health, simply moving through the day is difficult. Interacting with others can be particularly challenging. Individuals may have trouble expressing their emotions or forming relationships. Those with a condition like attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) may lack focus or act impulsively.
You or your loved one don’t have to continue to struggle with these issues. As part of our mental health services, Fraser offers Mental Health Skills Training. The program helps individuals develop skills and coping strategies. For those with problematic behavior, they work on reducing these outbursts. The program also strengthens daily skills, flexibility, relationship skills, safety awareness, communication, problem solving and self-advocacy.
Mental Health Skills Training is available for ages 2 to 21. Individuals can work with a parent, their family, on their own or with a group of peers. Group skills focuses specifically on the social and coping skills needed to interact with a group.
