A community for teens in Utah
Come Join Us!
Common Thread is a welcoming community specifically designed for teens who have
experienced significant adversity to support mental health, build connection, and foster
Trauma research reveals healing and recovery from trauma to be impossible without lasting, caring connections to others. We desire for teens to feel safe, better connect with themselves and others, gain skills and confidence in new experiences, increase access to safe adults, and have more opportunities to form positive experiences to heal.
We host events twice a month and offer free resources and programs for teens ages 12+. From pottery, paddle-boarding, and summer outdoor movies to equine-assisted group work, art classes, and free therapy, Common Thread is working hard to support mental health, build connection, and foster resilience within the community. A pivotal piece of our organizational structure is our Teen Advisory Board. We have 18 teens and young adults who have various lived experiences to ensure this community centers teen voices, as this is their community. We are passionate about creating a space for those connected by this "common thread." We have a team of certified, diverse, and trauma-informed staff. If you are questioning whether or not to come, please join us!
