Schedule a single session or series with a Mental Health First Aid National Trainer for your community.

Cultivate space for reflection + connection with our Literary Therapy Writing Program

FOR: Learners, educators, staff, administrators of all levels, community, family, non-profits, etc.

GetSomeJoy’s Literary Therapy Writing Program is an interactive experience that uses introspective writing, mindfulness strategies, group discussion in a safe and supportive environment to center joy, foster connection, and cultivate tools and strategies to cope and thrive during this raggedy moment in history.

The Literary Therapy Writing Program does not focus on producing or editing a specific piece of written work. This program offers space for expression, affirmation, utilizing creative wellness practices for stress management, unpacking impactful recent events, and celebrating ourselves. Participants will reflect, collaborate, and receive resources for additional support and exploration.

Sessions are available virtually or in-person:

  • as one-time experiences,

  • a biweekly/monthly/quarterly/biannual series,

  • conference breakout or retreat component,

  • as part of your wellness campaign or program, etc.

Available curriculums:

  • Literary Therapy for Educators and Administrators

  • Literary Therapy for Students

  • Navigating Grief + Loss with Joy

  • Literary Therapy for Caregivers

  • a custom curriculum that suits your needs


Foster connection + prioritize mindfuless with our Community Literary Therapy Wall

Our bright yellow traveling community wellness exhibit offers public space for reflection and sharing on joy, mental health, and tools for coping and thriving.

What does joy mean to you? How does it smell, taste, sound, feel? Pick a prompt, write a little or a lot on a Literary Therapy Postcard, grab a fried chicken sticker, and join the conversation. Or you can let it marinate and respond later. Take some stickers and a card to reflect with a friend? Yes, please.

Since its debut in January 2022, our Community Literary Therapy Wall has helped center joy at parades and conferences, in libraries, classrooms, and spaces in Oakland, Los Angeles, Storm Lake, Brooklyn, and Binghamton.

We even have a virtual version!

Where to next? Let’s talk about it.
