Clancy Philbrick 

LiveWell Teens (Volunteer) Program Coordinator

Combining his own experience of living well with depression with years of teaching teens and young adults in both formal and informal learning environments, Clancy helped to create the LiveWell Schools® curriculum: a skill-based psychoeducational curriculum uniquely designed to meet the developmental needs of teens. In response to COVID-19, he led the effort to launch LiveWell Teens support groups online, which currently provides free educational-based mental health support and depression/suicide prevention to teens ages 14-18 around the globe.  

 

Clancy's educational, social, and visual arts practices have been weaving the unique fabric for his multifaceted career as an educator, artist, and mentor.  As an outdoor educator, Clancy has partnered with the ROTC and the Oskiin Leadership Institute at Widener University, guided trips into the wildernesses of Colorado, California, and the North East, and worked with youth and adults teaching integrative approaches to academic subject matter and wilderness survival skills. Clancy’s social arts practice has led to collaborative projects with award winning musicians, performance artists, high school students, and visual artists in addition to specific projects with the Mural Arts Program and Project HOME in Philadelphia. Clancy's artwork has been exhibited and collected across the United States and internationally.

The LiveWell Program® is strategically designed to teach people the skills they need to not only reduce symptoms and relapses of depression, but also to live a more meaningful, connected, and productive life.

 

Because depression is often a complex interaction of iological, pyschlogical, social, environemental, and spirutal factors, we know that treatment cannot be a one-size-fits-all approach.  So we've integrated aspects of various evidence-based therapies into a one-of-a-kind, holistic behavioral health curriculum that centers around the LiveWell Strategies.

We continue to create new research-based versions of the original skill-based LiveWell curriculum to better serve our peers, such as LiveWell Teens, LiveWell Seniors, LiveWell Physicians, and LiveWell Recovery (for adults living with the co-occurring issue of depression and substance use disorders).

Because social isolation - and/or silence and secrecy - will always make depression worse, we know that treatment and care must happen in community.  And that's what we are - an international community of supportive peers with shared  experience of depression and recovery who are dedicated to helping each other live well. ​

The LiveWell Program® is strategically designed to teach people the skills they need to not only reduce symptoms and relapses of depression, but also to live a more meaningful, connected, and productive life.

 

Because depression results from diverse factors and symptoms can affect every aspect of life, we know that treatment cannot be a one-size-fits-all approach.  So we've integrated aspects of various evidence-based therapies and best practices from other effective interventions into a one-of-a-kind, holistic behavioral health curriculum that centers around the LiveWell Strategies.

While electcic and diverse apprach, in common. We are all dedcicated to:

Integrating the skill-based LiveWell Program into the process, but we're peers too! 

Drawing on widsom gained from our own shared experience of managing depression and its related health issues and living well. 

We believe that when all people are taught effective coping strategies, and are surrounded by a community of peers who believe in their power to change and grow, they can -- and will -- reach their full potential. And that's what LiveWell is all about.

And we really get it. Drawing on wisdom gained from our own lived experience of recovery and living well, we know firsthand that people feel better and flourish when they are surrounded by a community who believe in their unique stregnths and resilience.   

you'll benefit from our one-of-a-kind, skill-based behavioral health program and strength-based approach.
