Coping Skills Programs

Living with mental illnesses or facing stressful life circumstances require a range of skills and strategies in order to move toward recovery and healing. Support groups connect people living with similar challenges and struggles, provide education and knowledge to normalise issues and offer space for sharing and processing. Groups have been shown to reduce stigma around mental health issues, build resiliency and a sense of empowerment, and develop a more cohesive and inclusive community and support network.

By sharing and developing practical coping skills and strategies, participants feel empowered to be able to manage their own mental health and wellbeing while also modelling self-care for their families and communities.

This program is designed for individuals who are living with anxiety, depression and the impacts of trauma.


We work from a somatic approach, offering participants opportunities to connect with their bodies and use their bodies as a resource. This includes mindful movement; using our breath to regulate our nervous system and; choice-making based on sensations in our bodies. 

In person groups available in Yangon, Myanmar.

Online Creative Coping for those living with anxiety coming soon in collaboration with Drama Therapy Online!

You are not alone

Living with mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression and trauma can be incredibly isolating and lonely. Group work assists individuals in building a support network, normalising their symptoms, developing healthy relationships and connections and realising they are not alone in their suffering.

In each individual, we recognise the strength and resiliency they possess. We hold at the core of our programs a strengths-based and person-centred approach with a belief that individuals have developed resources and skills that have helped them survive and that these strengths can be nurtured in order for them to thrive.
