Show and Heal holistically strengthens the mental health of youth so they can show their authentic selves in the world and heal their communities❤️
Depression, anxiety and isolation pervade the daily lives of youth. These issues are compounded by inadequate funding and mental health resources in mindfulness and self-care education.With these problems in mind, the mission of Show & Heal is to holistically strengthen the mental health of youth so they can show their authentic selves in the world and heal their communitiesVision Show and Heal envisions a world where every child belongs, as we foster a future where similarities and differences are embraced, and mindfulness and self-care education are accessible to all. Our holistic commitment to our community builds resilience through: Advocacy, Education, Inclusion, and Social Justice
Show and Heal has been running Self-Care 101 at John I Leonard for two years. When the coronavirus hit, we pivoted and transformed the in-person after-school program into an online support system, which consists of mental health counselors, teachers, and students checking in to express their concerns, fears, and feelings during the pandemic. Below students share how the Self-Care 101 program has helped them.
