We stand with & uphold this year's World Health Day vision to build a fairer and healthier world.
A survey conducted by Mental Health America found that youth mental health in 2021 is worsening. The disruption of the pandemic (erratic schooling, social unrest, staying safe, financial hardships, and coping with sickness and death) is putting immense stress on our youth.
Building resilience to cope with these stresses is vital to equip children with the ability to work through challenges now, and throughout their lifetime.
According to the Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University, regular physical exercise, stress-reduction practices, and programs that build self-regulation skills can improve the abilities of children to cope with challenges, and even prevent adversity in life.
At InnerConnected our mission is to increase access to wellness tools for youth. Through our Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Curriculum, we use mindful movement, meditation and play to bolster curiosity, mindful presence and resilience in youth. These practices can lead to more positive experiences, and better mental health outcomes.
