Emotions in Action is a fun after school group mentoring program partnering Ann Arbor middle schoolers with University of Michigan students to promote emotional wellness by teaching concrete emotional management techniques.
This program aims to reduce the stigma associated discussion of emotions and mental health and better prepare our youth for their future both mentally and emotionally. The goal of Emotions in Action is to lessen the overall mental strain middle school students experience by practicing concrete emotional management techniques and creating a space where children can be themselves, talk about their emotions, and learn emotional management skills.
