How Circles Work

What are Circles?
Circles are live group sessions led by Modern Health therapists. You'll walk away from each session with skills to navigate challenges that may be impacting your mental health — whether at work, at home, or in your personal relationships.

During each Circle, facilitators will start by sharing concepts to help you think differently, and offer tools that you can put into action right away.

Throughout the rest of the session, you’ll have a chance to ask questions, listen to others, or share your own experiences during an optional, facilitated discussion.

Creating a Safe Space
We want to ensure that each Circle is a safe, intimate space for you to share and learn. We encourage attendees to join with video on, and assure you that your private information will not be shared externally. All attendees are required to abide by our Code of Conduct.

Healing Circles for Allies in Solidarity
Healing Circles for Allies are spaces that uplift and support allies of the Black community as they navigate the experience of racism, which undoubtedly affects us all. Participants have an opportunity to process their feelings, share their stories, and learn different ways to be an ally in an effort to facilitate healing. Come to learn, share, and heal. We’ll be discussing how we are all impacted by racism in America and why you need healing too.
This session is open to people of all cultures and ethnic backgrounds who feel impacted by current events and are committed to addressing anti-Black racism, implicit bias, and White privilege for healing, personal growth, and social change.

Celebrating Diversity within Black Communities
In honoring Black History, it is important to acknowledge the role that systemic racism has played in using rhetoric that describes people of African descent as a single community, as opposed to a collection of communities. Join this session, led by a Modern Health provider, to reclaim the narrative and celebrate the rich diversity and history across Black communities.
This session is open to individuals of all identities who are interested in confronting anti-Black racism. This will be a Listen & Learn session, so if you are looking for in-depth learning on a topic and the chance to ask questions, this is the Circles format for you.

Celebrating Black Greatness
Much of the discourse about Black communities focuses on racial trauma and the pain and struggle that comes alongside anti-Black racism. While undoubtedly important, such a one-sided conversation neglects seeing the broader picture and celebrating all of the countless contributions to history, science, mathematics, and the arts, by Black individuals in societies across the globe. Join us for this session, led by a Modern Health provider, to recognize, honor, and celebrate Black Greatness on the global stage.
This session is open to individuals of all identities who are interested in confronting anti-Black racism. This will be a Listen & Learn session, so if you are looking for in-depth learning on a topic and the chance to ask questions, this is the Circles format for you.
