The Strong Minds Virtual Retreat is six weeks worth of wellness material to help you finish out 2020 strong and set personal goals for 2021.

Topics that will be covered include:

– Doing a mental health check
– Taking a mental health break
– Learning how to support others
– Learning ways to cope with stressful times
– Doing acts of kindness
– Practicing self-care and self-love

Each day throughout the six weeks we will offer a topic to focus on for the day at 10:00 AM. At 2:00 PM we will then offer an activity to complete- there will be live opportunities on Zoom (see registration links below in the Strong Minds calendar) or activities you can do on your own. Then at 5:00 PM every day we encourage you to journal using the prompts that we provide.

Missed the launch? You can join and participate at any time! Athletes, coaches, volunteers, families, community members, and staff members are invited to take part in this 6-week virtual retreat.
