The enemy is isolation. More than 25% of Utah teens are feeling sad enough to consider suicide and 8% report having tried at least once to take their own lives.
As a response, Pivot Adventure has developed an adventure therapy course designed to help students build a compass to navigate through life's challenges. Throughout the workshop, students develop the tools they need to increase their resilience.
We have partnered with the FMK Foundation, who have trained students from the University of Utah in Question, Persuade and Refer (QPR) suicide prevention techniques. These college students will be mentors throughout the course.
Students learn how to turn the struggles they face into learning experiences. By doing so, they can create a better quality of life. This course is intentionally designed for adolescents (12 to 17 years old) struggling with anxiety, depression and suicide ideation. Our course is award winning and has been featured at TEDxSLC.
Students participate in at least one adventure activity per week for 12 weeks after school.
The course includes 12 guided adventure activities with a Recreation Therapist, course materials, instruction, therapeutic assessment, QPR training.

Contrary to what we usually believe, the best moments in our lives are not the passive, receptive, relaxing times. The best moments usually occur when a person's body or mind is stretched to its limit in a voluntary effort to accomplish something difficult and worthwhile.
Optimal experience is thus something that we can make happen. It is how we respond to stress that determines whether we will profit from misfortune or be miserable.
Forces within ourselves and in the environment stand in our way. Without guidance, this process can take years of trial-and-error. Pivot Adventure accelerates this personal transformation for teenagers and their families by providing a deep view of change.
