Empower Your Mind to Unlock Your Light

Achieve Mental Well-being with an Integrated Holistic Approach.

"While attending classes and YCLOC remotely, I went from being an average student to an honor roll student. I learned about self-control and using the arts (Drama) to help me process and release negative emotions and behaviors."

Individuals take an active role in the research process to foster peer connection and support, develop valuable skills, and gain relevant insights to understand mental health and mindfulness.
