Children’s mental health is essential and a critical part of healthy communities. This year has been especially challenging and the mental health impact of anxiety, stress, loss, and pain are huge — especially for young people and families. Child Guidance Resource Centers provides 9,600 children and families in Southeastern Pennsylvania a place to turn when they need it most.
To offer assistance with mental health care, Child Guidance Resources Centers has put together a few free mental health resources for the community!
- Their Mental Health Toolkit, found at www.cgrc.org/blog, is continually updated with resources and support articles addressing a range of topics including self care, managing anxiety, the power of routine, cultivating gratitude and more.
- CGRC also offers free virtual meetups with therapists every week. Some are general support groups and others are geared toward specific topic areas. Learn more by visiting their Facebook page or by emailing LRichmond@cgrc.org.
- Twice a week, check out the #10at10 where different therapists share ten minutes of insights and tools to make your week more smooth.
