Mood Lifters - INDY YMCA Online
15 weeks to improved mental wellness!
Once a Week: Same Day, Time & Place
Improve Your Relationships + Mood
Depression? Anxiety? Stress? Mood Lifters meets you where you are. Over the course of 15 weekly meetings, you will learn the most effective strategies to manage life - and not just today - but for the curve balls life may throw at you tomorrow, next month or next year.
Evidenced-based = It Works
Mood Lifters was tested in a randomized control trial, the gold standard for scientific research. Participants show statistically significant decreases in depressive and anxiety symptoms and negative emotions.
Our Strategy. Your Strength.
Each week, your group (8-15 people like you) will discuss the latest science related a specific topic. After learning about the topic you will apply this knowledge to set your goal(s) for the upcoming week. Over the next 7 days your “homework” is to practice your goals - the secret to your success - because practice makes perfect and habits don’t change overnight.
All groups are led by a specially-trained peer leader - a previous program participant who wants to help others experience the same life-changing success. On-going research proves that our peer leaders are just as effective as professionally-trained providers.
You Are Not Alone
You are not alone in this journey - 8-15 of your peers will join you every week! While each will have their own unique challenges and concerns - you share a common goal - to live a happy and healthy life! Support from your group is just another ingredient in the recipe for improved mental fitness.
“Mood lifters was beneficial in ways I could not have imagined. The combination of kind, empathetic and most importantly, experienced leaders, time with other parents who were walking a similar path and researched based sessions on relevant topics comes together to create a healing environment for parents. It is the ultimate framework to take an experience that is life altering and give parents the opportunity to move beyond surviving and into thriving.”
