Navigating Distress is a way to develop a more clear understanding of your concerns and learn some new skills to help cope with them. It is uniquely helpful because you receive the benefit of learning and practicing skills without feeling pressured to share deeply personal information. Participants respond privately to writing prompts instead of being asked to disclose personal information. These sessions will be ran with the Mental Health Support Peers.
