Program Overview:

Enhancing the Mind-Body Connection

Our program places emphasis on accepting symptoms, promoting movement, nurturing mindfulness, and challenging distorted perceptions. Available in-person and virtually, participants learn coping skills, navigate obstacles, and develop new ways of thinking—all with the goal of better understanding and leveraging the mind-body connection. Compass Virtual is a great option for those whose medical issues and symptoms are a barrier to consistently attending a program on-site.

Our Success Stories

Double Quotes - Compass Health Center

Compass saved my life! I came into Compass with suicidal ideations and no hope. After a couple of weeks of being in the program, I did not have those thoughts anymore. Compass helped me change my mindset, from a negative pattern of thoughts to a more positive and optimistic frame of mind.

Double Quotes - Compass Health Center

My child is leaving Compass more equipped to handle her emotions, her anxiety, her depression, and the things that all trigger these. She is willing to use the skills, which is a huge change, and this is all due to how well Compass worked for her.

I liked how in Compass, everyone was respectful of my opinions, pronouns, and preferred name. There was no judging, and you can open up to people. I also like how I can relate to other kids. I also really appreciate learning new skills.

Double Quotes - Compass Health Center

Compass is a godsend. An amazing program for children who are struggling and families who are seeking help and guidance. I could not imagine that she would be so much better in less than 2 months. I wish we could have found Compass without going to the ER. Thanks for all you do!
