EMPOWER TEENS PROGRAM


Ever wondered…
Why the depression cases & suicide rates in our teenagers are at an all time high ?

According to a new survey released by the American Psychology Association & Global Organization for Stress, Teens stress levels globally have exceeded the levels of stress faced by Adults.

The early teen years are marked by rapid changes — physical, cognitive and emotional. They also face, changing relationships with peers, physiological changes, access and adaption to social media, new demands at school, family tensions, and safety issues in their communities.

The ways in which teens cope with these stressors can have significant short and long-term consequences on their physical and emotional health. Difficulties in handling stress can lead to mental health problems, such as depression and anxiety disorders.

Empower Teens Program was created with an intention to provide a proactive solution to the growing epidemic of Teenage Stress & related mental health issues.

“We spent our first family session with Binny…What an incredible experience! It started off by playing games that developed unity and trust, understanding the likes and dislikes of each member, self-reflection and introspection exercises, basic yoga postures and finally a peaceful meditation to end the session. An amazing 3 hours! My heartfelt gratitude goes out to you for pulling me away from work to focus on the most important thing in my life, my family!”

“"First, a big thank you for a wonderful session yesterday! The kids have their vision boards up on the wall in their rooms, they have been writing their daily journal for the last 3 months, filled in their holiday journal with pictures of fun filled activities of our family vacation in Thailand and Dubai and have been meditating for 5 minutess daily…though not regular yet with this, but they are still 11 and 13yrs old!!!!”

“I have observed that most of the participants have become self driven as as attendance of class is concerned & I don't have to push them to go unlike what used to be the case in the past.”
