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 each Election Support session you’ll have a chance to ask questions and learn from experts.

Creating a Safe Space
All attendees are required to abide by our Code of Conduct.

How to Navigate the Holidays: 2020 Edition (Workshop)

This year, we also have a pandemic that is getting worse by the day. While this holiday season may not be what you pictured, realize you are resilient! Join this session with a Modern Health therapist to discuss the stressors of the season and learn skills and strategies for integrating self-care, coping with difficult thoughts and emotions, and also finding moments of peace and joy.
This will be a skill-building workshop, so if you are looking to learn and practice new skills and tools, this is the Circles format for you!

How to Navigate Relationships When you Don’t Agree (Listen & Learn)
Despite your political views, we can probably all agree that politics has divided us more than ever. And, it can be hard to even broach the topic with people (especially loved ones!) who have differing opinions. Join us for a session on How to Navigate Relationships When You Don’t Agree to hear that you are not alone, and there are ways to keep relationships strong when views don’t always converge.
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!
