Event Types :
On January 23, led by mental health professionals from the Orange County Public Schools CHILL program, we will seek to clearly define what self-care is.

The modern conveniences of cell phones, Internet access and constant connectivity can be wonderful ways to stay in touch, learn new things and access important information any time of day. But with these tools also comes what can be serious side effects, particularly for young people.

In an age of hearing different perspectives at all times via social media and the constant hustle culture, what does self-care look like? Is it actually a selfish thing to pursue or is it necessary for survival? With information overload, how is an individual to differentiate what is important to them versus what one has heard an Instagram influencer say? Self-care for children and teenagers may look a lot different than for adults and parents, and this is an important aspect to realize when raising or working with children.

In this hands-on workshop, led by mental health professionals from the Orange County Public Schools CHILL program, we will seek to clearly define what self-care is and the purpose behind it. The CHILL counselors will help you understand your “why” behind self-care and how to support this for yourself, your family, and your children.

Mindfulness is a huge part of self-care that will be covered and you will gain some practical techniques on how to apply this in your day to day. Join the conversation as we seek to set foundations for some common terms that are thrown around quite a bit these days.

This program is presented by CHILL Counselors and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.

About the Presenter:  

The CHILL (Community Help & Intervention in Life’s Lessons) program in Orange County Public Schools was founded in 1998 by the Winter Park Health Foundation in partnership with the 12 Orange County Public School serving Winter Park, Maitland and Eatonville. CHILL provides free, confidential, in-school counseling to students and their families. It is part of a collection of school-based health and wellness services supported by WPHF called the Coordinated Youth Initiative (CYI). Other services include nurses, nurse practitioners in school-based health centers, and healthy school teams.
