This month, the mindyourmind team continued to develop the art resources that were a result of the Yellowknife Design Lab. As part of the Design Lab, each youth created a unique piece of art that will now be converted into stickers and wearable art. This art will be used to help start the conversation around mental health within the Yellowknife community. Stay tuned to see what these look like, and even receive one if you’re interested!
We also had our final meeting with our Montreal Design Lab. The Wellness Deck we co-created was shipped out to each youth and we came together on Zoom to celebrate our hard work. The Wellness Deck is a set of cards, in English and French, that provide tangible tips to support you on your wellness journey.
As for what is next, we are now planning for our next Design Lab happening in Oakville, Ontario in the month of September.
