MaineStay Offers Programs to Help Teens and Parents Succeed


MaineStay's winter schedule is filled with educational opportunities for youth and adults alike that help them gain new skills and increase their success in life. Only 10 spaces are available in each group, so you’re encouraged to sign up early.


Girls Self-Esteem Group

February 10 - March 17, 2015

This six-week group will help girls develop a greater awareness of cultural influences that can set unrealistic expectations, which in turn can quickly erode one's self-esteem. Students will leave with a better understanding of how unique and beautiful they really are.


Teens Overcoming Depression Group

This eight-week teen group will help teach adolescents how to overcome depression. Participants will learn the link between their thoughts and feelings, and how changing their thought patterns can help them better cope with life's problems. 


Parenting Class

During this six-week course you'll discover that parenting really can be enjoyable! Learn how to teach personal responsibility and respect without losing your child's love. Using a blend of discussion and engaging video filled with plenty of real life stories and examples, you will gain practical skills you can use immediately.



March 3, 2015

This new program is designed for youth needing a little help with homework, and who enjoy having fun and socializing through positive team-building activities. We’re also looking for adults with education backgrounds or experience working with youth, as well as qualified teens and college students, to volunteer for this program.


Anxiety Coping Skills Group

March 5 - April 23, 2015

This eight-week group will help students learn effective ways to deal with anxiety and stress. Students and parents will receive workbooks to assist with practicing and reinforcing the skills learned.

Our eight-week group will help teach adolescents how to recognize where anger comes from, how to gain control over anger, and how to avoid trouble by handling anger in more positive ways.
