  • ACT Group

Monday 1-2:30 or Wednesday 9-10:30 Call CAPS for Location

ACT is a relatively new, mindfulness-based program for reducing stress, overcoming fear, and creating a rich and meaningful life. ACT will help you learn to relate differently to your anxious feelings, depressed moods, worrying minds, self-defeating behaviors, and/or anything else that causes you problems. The aim of ACT is to limit the ways these run your life.
