Hiawatha Valley Mental Health Center is excited to announce a new summer group program called Girls in Real Life Situations (GIRLS). The program is for teenage girls entering into seventh grade through 12th grade in the fall of 2019, who are struggling with bullying, peer pressure and self-image.

“Our hope is that the participants will feel supported, heard, and recognized in a safe space throughout various 'real life' discussions,” said Hiawatha Valley Mental Health Center Case Manager Danielle Walther. “They will gain skills to assist them with being preventative and proactive throughout this difficult stage in their lives.”

Hiawatha Valley Mental Health Center created the program after an expressed need in the community for additional mental health services for teens. The program is made possible through a grant partnership with the Winona Community Foundation. To find out if you or someone you know qualifies for the GIRLS group, contact Danielle Walther, Hiawatha Valley Mental Health Center case manager, at DanielleW@hvmhc.org or 507-454-4341.
