dōTERRA Donates to the Ivy Girl Academy September Workshop for Teen Girls
While many of the activities at the workshop are more skill-oriented, one special part about the workshop is the focus on gaining confidence through a positive mental attitude, goal-setting, and self-respect. These kinds of trainings are especially important for young teenage girls, since they are susceptible to developing anxious feelings or bouts of depression as they move into their adolescent years. Although both genders are at risk for mood disorders like depression and anxiety, teenage girls are twice as likely to be diagnosed with a mood disorder as teenage boys.1 When depression and anxiety go unchecked, especially in teenagers, this can lead to more serious mental health problems in the future.
The September workshop successfully accomplished IGA’s goal of empowering teenage girls as they prepare for their high school years and beyond, and doTERRA appreciated the opportunity to contribute to such a powerful youth event. To learn more about the Ivy Girl Academy, visit their website.
