Change to Chill, Allina Health's award-winning mental well-being program, is now offering free training sessions to share the program's techniques more widely. Change to Chill works as a guide to help teens become more aware of the things that stress them out, and equip them with tools and resources to better manage stress and anxiety and live happier, more resilient lives.
"As the Change to Chill program grows we are seeing an influx in requests for Change to Chill trainings to continue to serve our communities," said Susan Nygaard, manager of Allina Health's Community Health Improvement. "To address these requests we are hosting several training sessions around the region, open to the community and free of charge."
The Change to Chill training sessions will:
• Provide educators and members of community with knowledge about teen stress;
• Demonstrate ready-to-use lesson, DIY activities, athlete-specific content and the new Action Guide for Teens;
• Provide educators and members of community with the skills to implement Change to Chill in a school or community setting and the knowledge to train others about various program components.
