Join Russell Library and our friends from QPlus as we make a stress ball while we talk about what causes us stress and how to manage it, including sharing various stress relief/management techniques, identifying ‘warning signs’ for when you need to take a self care break, and how to decide what type of self care is necessary (sure, blast your favorite song, but also have some water).
This session will take place at Crystal Lake in McCutcheon Park.
For young people age 13 - 20.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions and to ensure everyone's safety we request that all families follow our Outdoor event guidelines:
We ask that you stay 6 feet away from other families for your safety, as well as the safety of others.
If any member of your household is not feeling well, has a fever, or is quarantining, we ask that you and your family stay home.

Q Plus is grassroots, community-based, youth-led, and (at least for now) volunteer-run. We are a group of teens, young adults, and older adult supporters. We work to create more youth accessible spaces, uplift youth voices, and empower youth, through programs like open mics, “adulting crash course” workshops, game nights, support groups, and GSA meetups. Our overall goal is to create space for queer youth to be authentically and entirely themselves. Every event and program we create is born of a need identified by queer young people, rather than suggested by adults. Our plan is to continue changing and evolving as the needs of queer youth continue to change and evolve. For more information on QPlus, please check out their website: https://qplusct.wixsite.com/qplusct
