The Hangout

Navigating the teenage years is challenging for most youth, but adolescence is even more complicated for socio-economically disadvantaged teens. With support from the Loudoun County government and Loudoun County Public Schools, INMED USA has developed a program to teach teens positive coping skills for better mental health and wellness.

The Hangout is a free program that provides middle- and high-school students the opportunity to participate in activities in a safe space where they feel comfortable.

This program is held in the afternoons at our Opportunity Center.  Groups of teens participate in activities ranging from art and music therapy to mindfulness and cooking a meal to share. The activities, which are led by INMED staff and volunteers, help teens build strong support networks.
