May 3rd - May 9th is Children's Mental Health Awareness Week!
May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and as a part of that, from from May 3rd to May 9th we celebrate Children's Mental Health Awareness Week. The purpose is to shine a national spotlight on the importance of caring for every child’s emotional wellbeing and reinforce the message that positive mental health is essential to the healthy development of every young person.
At The NAN Project, children and adolescent mental health is our biggest priority; this is now more important than ever during this ongoing period of social isolation and school closures. In response, we've created a number of free resources for students, educators and families that focus on reinforcing the importance of self-care, developing schedules & routines, mindfulness, and much more. To access these lesson plans, peer mentor videos, resource sheets, professional development webinars and links to further resources, check out the COVID-19 resource page on our website.
We understand the difficulties many young people are facing and want to leave folks with a message that it will get better....
Check out The NAN Project's superstar Peer Coordinator, Elli, discuss what she's been up to during this period of self isolation and some of the strategies she's used to get through this difficult time!
The NAN Project's work has been greatly affected by the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. But we're not stopping.
We need your support now more than ever as we continue to navigate this difficult time. Please consider donating to The NAN Project so that we can continue to deliver a message of hope and healing to those who need it most.
