Child & Youth Mental Health
Children’s Mental Health Week 2020
New Path Youth & Family Services has kindly shared this colouring sheet (English) for Children’s Mental Health Week. They are inviting children and youth in their community to hang them in their windows, and have their parents or guardians take a picture and upload it to social media using the hashtag #CMHW2020 #shinegreen.
The colour green and the green ribbon are used to celebrate child and youth mental health as it represents hope, growth, and transformation. The patterns in this specific colouring page design are like those found in mandala colouring pages. These are known to help relieve stress and tension, something we can all use at this very stressful time.
