Live Like Sam THRIVE Program registration ends March 9

PARK CITY, Utah – Local nonprofit Live Like Sam (LLS) aims to develop moral fiber, athleticism or artistry, and community service in our community’s children through programming and scholarshipping. THRIVE is one of these programs in partnership with Well-being Elevated, focusing on mental health.

The THRIVE program is a preventative mental health initiative that empowers and strengthens youth well-being. LLS and Well-being Elevated partnered to help address the growing nationwide mental health crisis.

The mental health crisis is particularly acute among Utah youth. The most recent Student Health and Risk Prevention Survey found that 70% of Summit County youth, grades 6-12, have moderate to high symptoms of depression, and 47% have moderate to high mental health treatment needs (2021).

THRIVE delivers evidence-based skills from positive and clinical psychology that promote resilience, thriving, and well-being. The THRIVE program is developed and delivered by Well-being Elevated.

THRIVE delivers its program to youth via an app and Zoom support groups. A select team of trained facilitators leads these groups, overseen by licensed clinicians. Students learn about skills on their app then meet weekly with peers to connect and complete specific exercises. Participants discuss techniques that promote well-being, learn relevant coping strategies, and share their challenges and successes in their sessions.

The THRIVE program cost is $295 but is currently being fully scholarshipped and is FREE for students for a limited time. Additionally, students who complete a minimum of five out of six weekly sessions will receive an $80 stipend. The Well-being Elevated team conducts research on the program, with approval from the Institutional Review Board at the University of Utah.
