July is Minority Mental Health Month! Warm weather is in full swing across much of the country, and many families are finding creative ways to enjoy outdoor activities and stay connected to loved ones.
Encourage the young people in your life to consider what they'd like to do this summer, and help them think outside the box. Take a look at a few ideas shared by Dr. Ellen Braaten during our recent
Facebook Live Q&A
- Explore your interests online. Take a virtual museum tour, or watch a documentary on a subject you're curious about.
- Find ways to serve others. Teach a grandparent how to use technology, create art for loved ones, or visit neighbors through a window.
- Create your own media. Instead of just consuming media, produce your own – make family videos, create a YouTube channel, or start a virtual book or movie club.
- Promote your summer business on the Internet. Spread the word online, whether you're offering virtual babysitting, painting, landscaping, or other skills!
