When Faced With Stress, Depression and Anxiety, Everyone Needs Help to COPE

Learn How to COPE

Our Cognitive Behavioral Therapy-based (CBT) programs are designed to help children, teens and young adults deal with anxiety, stress and depression by showing them how to develop the skills needed to stop negative thoughts and start thinking and behaving in more positive ways.

The evidence-based 15-Session COPE Healthy Lifestyles TEEN (Thinking, Emotions, Exercise, and Nutrition) manual-based program builds upon the skills learned in the 7-Session Teen Program by including sessions on healthy nutrition and physical activity, helping teen to engage in healthy lifestyle behaviors, improve their self-esteem, cope with stress, and lessen anxiety and depressive symptoms. 

The evidence-based 7-Session manual-based and online programs provide support for children, teens and young adults using brief, easy-to-follow sessions, complete with skills-building activities, that convey that there is hope for change, and that both depression and anxiety are treatable.
