Build resilience. Prevent burnout. Live happy. Help others do the same.

The Heart Spring Community for Helping Professionals is an engaged online community in the Center for Adolescent Studies with the mission of supporting helping professionals develop mindfulness, presence, self-care routines, and overall resilience. Rather than a standalone online course, the “heart” of Heart Spring is ongoing training and support. This is the best way to successfully integrate these critical practices into your life consistently.
