Anxiety Groups

The Anxiety Groups offered at St. Clair Child & Youth Services are evidence-based prevention programs proven to be effective in building emotional resilience and teaching strategies that are practical and useful for coping with times of worry and change.

Free to Be Me (children 6 and under)

Free to Be Me is designed to support children in recognizing emotions and to introduce helpful ways to express those emotions.  As the children discuss each feeling, they learn to identify the feeling in others and to recognize helpful ways to communicate and to express emotions.
