Toolbox for Wellness

A safe place for adolescents who are experiencing symptoms of depression

The CarePlus NJ Toolbox for Wellness group is a 10-week therapeutic group for adolescents in grades 9-12. This group is designed for youth experiencing symptoms of anxiety and/or depression who are interested in developing coping skills to manage and process situations in a healthy way. Participants will gain peer support in an inclusive environment and learn how our thoughts can impact both mood and behaviors. Through the use of the evidence-based treatment modality, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), participants will be better able to replace or reframe negative thoughts and fill their mental health toolbox with crucial tools to help manage their everyday lives.

Program Goals:

  • Teach Problem-Solving Skills
  • Enrich Coping Skills
  • Improve Interpersonal Relationships
  • Promote Individuality and Self-Esteem

These goals will be met through the use of:

  • Reframing unhealthy thinking
  • Practice replacing negative thoughts with helpful thinking
