Our enrichment programs offer our clients the opportunity to build self-confidence and uncover their untapped potential.
Participation in sports, performing arts, and other physical and artistic activities can play an important role in helping children develop mental focus and clear their minds from everyday distractions — especially for children struggling with anxiety, depression and other mental health challenges. Available to Mid-Fairfield clients and family members, program schedules are available at our reception desk.

Therapeutic Groups Using Art: 6 Weeks | Ages 5-17
Beginning 4/26; Tuesdays from 5-6:00pm
Therapy groups utilizing art help to promote healing, improve coping skills, and reduce stress. The use of art encourages children to express themselves in ways that sometimes words just cannot convey. Through a variety of mediums, children will explore their feelings and reflect upon their experiences. Children are welcomed in a supportive, nonjudgmental and safe setting, where they can be creative and fully themselves. Previous artistic ability or experience is not required; only a willingness to try and an open mind is needed.
Therapeutic Groups Using Music: 6 Weeks | Ages 6-14
Beginning 4/28; Wednesday’s from 4-5pm
Students will be inspired to express their feelings, emotions, and experiences through a variety of music mediums. Students will participate in rhythm/drum circles and explore various instruments. Our goal is to find our voices both literally and figuratively, tap into our musical energy, and create a new outlet for expression. The group promotes emotional healing, improves coping skills, reduces stress, and can help ground individuals with sensory processing issues or trauma.
Therapeutic Groups Using Song Writing: 6 Weeks | Ages 9-17
Day & Time TBD
Students will be inspired to express their feelings, emotions and experiences through song writing. Individuals can chose from any music genres and with the support and guidance of professional musicians create their own song. The goal is to help individuals create a new outlet for expression.
