Parents, guardians and advocates joined their Ambassadors in Training and experienced a weekly training.
Training sessions are 2 hours, three times a month.
Ambassadors in Training receive one hour of mental health training, and one hour of mindfulness training at each session.
Parent Bootcamp was a huge success! Great leadership was demonstrated by our Ambassadors—who became the instructors for the evening giving presentations, administering pre and post tests and leading meditations to their parents—and a great learning experience for the parents (who realized they had LOTS to learn about mental health conditions, available resources and mindfulness techniques.
Parents were able to engage and became self aware of the importance of both mental health and mindfulness not only for their youth, but for themselves as well.
