12 Days of mindyourmind: Day 11 - Blog Section

The 12 Days of mindyourmind blog series seeks to highlight the ways in which you can use the tools we’ve created with the youth you work with. We know that it can be difficult to think of new ideas, so we’ve compiled some of our best resources and interesting ways to use them.

Definitely take some time to read through our blog section where you will find tons of content to enjoy from different writers. We take contributions from all walks of life, so the content is varied and typically shares messages of positivity and hope. One of our current blog series is called “Down In The Dumps” and is penned by a Western university student who shares her journey of navigating depression on campus. Past series have focused on ways to deal with dysfunctional family, self harm, mental health helplines and much more. We also have a blog series over on our YouthExperts website which highlights work from federal project that we have been a part of since 2018. This national initiative has had mindyourmind travelling across Canadian communities co-creating mental health resources for the unique realities of each place, and the blog series highlights monthly updates on these projects! Our longest standing series is Feel Good Friday, where every other Friday we share heartwarming stories that lifted our spirits. Let us know if there are any topics you would like to see covered, and we are always accepting submissions from the public. Perhaps you could encourage the youth you work with to create a blog series, or even one blog, to submit. You could also have your youth select a blog on our site that they felt inspired by, and have a discussion around what some of the positive impacts of blogs in general might be.

We hope this has given you some inspiration. If you have any different ideas or interesting ways you’ve used our tools, we’d love to hear about it. Stay tuned for our next installment of The 12 Days of mindyourmind , dropping tomorrow!
