Creating a Truer Self

The Creating a Truer Self (CATS) Program is a mental health and skills building workshop for girls ages 11-18. The primary purpose is to provide a safe space and opportunity to dive deeper into discussion and activities that promote healing from past trauma and improve the girls' ability to function positively in decision-making related to their physical and emotional health. CATS provides education and skill-building that encourages them to make responsible decisions through building self-esteem, recognizing healthy relationships, creating a positive self-image and learning the importance of nutrition and exercise. To learn more about CATS or schedule a session, please contact Christina Illarmo or Gabrielle Freels. CATS is funded by the Greater New Orleans Foundation.
