Why this creative work matters

In 2020, reports of new or worsened mental health conditions have risen across all age categories, but sharply among kids and families. The numbers are undeniably tied to the rise in COVID-19 cases, as well as the real-life impacts of isolation on community, support networks, socialization, and physical movement. This project offers a fun, no-cost, self-paced toolset to live in a healthier, happier “new normal”.
