Healthy Minds Project educates and empowers youth, families, and teachers to meet life's challenges by providing the skills and tools needed to successfully meet the challenges in healthy ways so we can embrace opportunities we might otherwise miss.
Beth Gallos and Kim O'Connor created Healthy Minds Project to provide effective programming and promote meaningful community dialogue on healthier ways to relate to time, self and others in this fast-paced world.
Both believe that mindful solutions can bring lasting change to children, families, and communities and use mindfulness informed approaches to improve the social-emotional wellbeing through individual and group therapy as well as school and community groups and workshops.
