What is COPE?

COPE helps young people develop the skills necessary to stop negative thoughts and start thinking and acting in more positive ways. Based on key components of cognitive-behavioral therapy, the COPE program leads participants through brief sessions that provide education and skills-building.

By turning negative thoughts into positive ones, children, teens, and young adults can feel better emotionally and behave in healthier ways.

COPE assists with reducing negative thoughts and emotions, building problem-solving skills, improved communication, enhanced self-esteem, and resilience, setting achievable goals, understanding and coping with stress, and feeling happier and healthier with increased positivity daily.
