What We Do
Our Whys Have Heartbeats
We are deeply concerned for the well-being of children, teens, young adults and all those who care for and support their journeys. We believe that learning and applying Self-Reg enhances resilience, emotion regulation and supports healthy development & learning.
A five-step method (and framework) to deal with stress so that we experience calm in mind and body and, from there, begin to restore physiologically, emotionally, psychologically and socially.
What We Do
At The MEHRIT Centre, we teach the people who care for and work with children and youth – parents, early years professionals and school teams – so they are better equipped to support dysregulated kids.
Enhancing Resilience in Children and Youth
In this Self-Reg course focused on resilience, we learn how to identify and overcome what is holding back many children and teens, we can spark their ability and desire to take on new learning, new challenges and new opportunities for increased health, well-being and community building.
Join us for the innaugural cohort facilitated by Susan Hopkins starting on August 3, 2023.
