Red Mountain Colorado, the leading mindfulness-based program for teens, joyfully celebrated its One Year Anniversary on August 7th, 2020. The occasion coincided with an inspiring student graduation and a two day long, all staff training seminar hosted by Founder and Operating Partner Josh White, MA, LCMHC, CGP along his wife and business partner Maureen White, MA, the Senior Program Advisor at the Colorado program.
In August of 2019, Josh White welcomed the facility, previously licensed by the state of Colorado as an RTC for adolescents ages 14 - 17, as the newest member of the Red Mountain Family of Programs. “Developing an adolescent program that embodies the proven Red Mountain clinical philosophy and approach to treatment has been an equally rewarding and challenging undertaking over the past year.” shares Josh White. “Nurturing the staff and students as they have embraced the Red Mountain core values of mindfulness, safety, compassion, confidence, and growth has been a powerful experience.”
The one year anniversary was a momentous occasion marked by the students, staff, and the leadership team enjoying a picnic lunch together in the beautiful campus courtyard - complete with Birthday Cake! The anniversary lunch also served as a celebration of a student graduation. Several key staff and many of the students spoke about their joy and admiration for the personal growth the student attained during his time at Red Mountain Colorado. Everyone in attendance passed around a green wrist Mala as a sentimental graduation gift and took turns suffusing it with their good wishes for him.
The outpouring of pride and positive energy felt by the entire Red Mountain Family during the graduation ceremony was evident during the intensive two days of all staff training. Josh and Maureen co-hosted the training which focused on deepening staff understanding of the core values through all aspects of the programming from daily interactions to clinical work.
“Witnessing the outcome of what we do, on the day we celebrated our one year anniversary, and in combination with a training focused on helping our staff to become better at what we do was incredibly powerful,” says Executive Director Kera Miller, MA, LPC. “I feel so proud of the work we do at Red Mountain Colorado as we support and guide our students on their journey to become young men.”
