EAU CLAIRE, Wis. — Adults are invited to help children in their lives build resilience, along with social and coping skills, by participating in Mayo Clinic Health System’s “Road to Resilience: Raising Healthy Kids” virtual program.
The free, six-week, game-like program runs from Sept. 17 through Oct. 28 and offers age-appropriate resources for adults and youth to work through together. The online resources are items you can do, read or watch in any order. You choose the content that best fits your situation. Parents, grandparents, teachers, community organizers and trusted friends to children can participate.
“Developing resilience and building positive relationships can help buffer the effects of early stress, challenges or trauma ” says Sara Carstens, director of Community Engagement & Wellness. “Resilience is not something that youth either have or don’t have; resilience is a skill that youth develop as they grow.”
The program will provide weekly emails, conversation starters and other information to help participants through the experience.
Learn more about the Road to Resilience: Raising Healthy Kids program and register by Sept. 16.
