Mindfulness: Youth Voices

Mindfulness: Youth Voices

By KeltyMentalHealth


Mindfulness means “paying attention in a particular way: 

On purpose, 

in the present moment, 

and without judgment” (Jon Kabat-Zinn). 

Much of our stress, pain, and suffering comes from being pulled away from the present moment. We are distracted with regrets about the past, worries about the future, and judgments about the present. Mindfulness training can help to improve our health and ways of coping. Up to now, most mindfulness programs have been for adults. Now, BC Children’s Hospital is developing a program for adolescents with chronic health conditions and/or depression.

Check out our new mindfulness video and mindfulness resources below.
