4 What's Next

The 4 What's Next Framework aims to teach students how to effectively handle distress by "reaching in" and utilizing personal coping strategies, "reaching out" seeking and accepting help outside of themselves, or a combination of the two.  By learning and applying the 4 What's Next Framework to their own lives students will:

  • Identify individual manifestations of distress
  • Understand how internal and external stressors impact mental health
  • Build resilience by learning specific actions to improve mental Wellness

4 What's Next meets young adults where they are developmentally, equipping them with transferable skills that can help bridge the gap between now and next. The program is for Juniors and Seniors in high school and is 5 sessions long.  The program will run on Wednesdays from 3:30-4:15 PM at the Municipal Center and begins October 7th.  Contact Youth Services to register 860-276-6284 or simmsc@southington.org
