we began with
A Simple Observation. Many young adults are struggling because they haven’t developed the skills they need to thrive in today’s complex world. For some of our clients, social interactions prove to be a hurdle. Engaging in groups or making friends is a challenging task. For others, time management is a difficult concept.
A Gap in Services. In Austin, TX, and various cities across the nation, communities have access to counseling and tutoring services. However, we struggled to find professionals that focused on developing skills necessary for both academics as well as social and emotional health. While everyone has strengths in these areas, many struggle to integrate all of the skills necessary to thrive. That's where Whole Mind comes in.
A Creative Solution. We aim to provide integrated skills training that encourages emotional, social, and cognitive health in individuals, families, and communities. Through skills coaching, we are teaching young people how to close the gap between current performance and what they are capable of. We are teaching them how to care for themselves as they navigate the challenges of school and life.
