Why High 5?
Research says that bonds with other people can become causes for happiness. Supportive social networks can act as buffers against the feeling of loneliness. Being connected to others can be a protective factor in life. A sense of belonging, at a time of family disruption can positively affect how they process the changes. The High 5 Tribe gives kids a safe place to process what is happening, identify and process the big emotions and give them a tool belt of problem solving skills.

Freedom to talk
High 5 Groups give kids a safe and confidential place to allow kids to learn, explore and express their feelings as they begin to heal from the emotional challenges of their parent’s divorce or separation.
Connection with others
Kids will see that they are not alone in these groups as they receive help and put a label to how they are feeling, in a safe place with other kids.
Healing through learning
Parents gain insight into what their kids are experiencing as a result of divorce and learn how to encourage authentic conversation and emotional health.
