Supporting Mental Health and Wellness At-Home
- Take care of yourself, even when it feels like the last thing you can do right now.
In order to cultivate healthy mental health and wellness of young people, you must take care of your own emotional wellness. Young children are sensitive to the stress of their caretakers.
- Engage in creativity together
Examples of creativity in action include cooking or baking together, doing puzzles, coloring, art projects, playing board games, or writing a poem or a song together.
- Help your child express and name emotions
This helps young people understand what it is that they’re feeling. If children are struggling to identify their feelings, ask them to express it through drawing, a facial expression, or through a movement in their body.
