We created a Mental Health Toolkit with activities to support your mental wellness. The activities are easy to do and can be tailored for any age group. You can do this on your own, with your family, with a group at a school or after school program. We hope to bring a little wellness into your lives with this toolkit and that you’ll share it with all your people
