Nurturing Self-Care and Mindfulness for Your Family

April 16 at 6:00 pm - 7:00 PM
Date & Time

April 16 | 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Event Types :
The CHILL program at Orange County Public Schools will help you understand your “why” behind self-care and how to support yourself & family.

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, we will seek to clearly define what self-care is and the purpose behind it. We hope to 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 we will also dive into and gain some practical techniques on how to apply this in your day to day. Will you join 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.
