Oliver had recently been suspended from school for behavioral issues. He had trouble following instructions in class and was disrespectful to his teacher and parents. His mother came into our office in need of some help. She said she had tried so many different techniques but nothing seemed to work for her son. She was at the end of her rope. Her family did not have health insurance so she applied to our Charitable Mental Health Program and submitted proof of her household income. Her son Oliver was approved into our program and received mental health services individually and in a family setting with his mother. By the end of treatment, Oliver and his mother found new ways to communicate in healthy ways and Oliver was able to improve his behavior in the home and in school.

Daniella was 18 years old and preparing to be terminated from the State of Utah foster care system and live in her first apartment on her own. She worked full time after graduating high school and was saving money to live as an independent adult. Daniella had to save her money to make some big purchases such as furniture, a bed, and saving up for her first car. Daniella was a recipient of Day One’s Transition to Adult Living Home Starter Kit to help her be successful in her apartment. The kit contained essential home items such as pots and pans, dish towels, plunger, cutting board, chef’s knife, measuring cups, etc. Daniella was so grateful to receive these items and felt better prepared to move into her apartment and still be able to save her money for the big purchases she had to make.
Resiliency Community Workshops
Do you have what it takes to Thrive & Bounce Back? Day One believes that Resiliency is not something a person is inherently born with, but is a set of skills that can be learned and improved upon. Our Resiliency Workshops can be delivered in a variety of formats including in-person or virtually and can be tailored to meet the needs of a specific audience such as workplace employees, parents, teens, children, or adults. Day One has presented our workshops in businesses, school settings, libraries, and we are open to collaborating with other agencies to bring our Resiliency education to community members.
Topics of Resiliency Workshops can include:
- What is resilience and how can I teach it to my child or teen?
- Identify and strengthen your unique resiliency builders
- Develop solid, transformative self-esteem
- Bounce back from life’s challenges stronger and wiser
- Unlock your innate capacity to overcome adversity,
including healing from Adverse Childhood Experiences
- The 7C’s of resilience
- Building family resilience
- Creating a climate of change with resilience
- Goal setting and mapping the future with resilience

Tera lives in Ogden, Utah and has three children ranging from teenagers to elementary school. Tera noticed her children were giving up easily on tasks and seem frustrated by hard assignments. Tera attended Day One’s Resiliency Workshop to better learn and understand resiliency skills. Tera participated and interacted with other attendees during the workshop and then went home to teach the skills to her children. Tera found that instilling resilience skills in her children made them not afraid to fail and try new things. She noticed that her teenage had more confidence and bounced back better after struggles with relationships.
