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.

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