NEW: Unbox Your Mind Activity Kit
When it comes to mental health, it is important to know that different approaches work better for different people. Unbox Your Mind empowers youth to get to know themselves better while learning new ways to identify and manage stress.
With the Unbox Your Mind Activity Kit you can learn about mental health, either at home or as a club, with resources, tools, and hands-on activities. The kit is available to 4-H youth members and families, volunteer leaders for their clubs, and youth and families outside of the 4-H community who are looking for engaging and educational resources and activities.
Registration to receive the Activity Kit opens May 26 and closes June 30, 2021, or until quantities last. Kits will ship within Canada in July 2021.
