Mental Health Links and Resources

Each week we will be sharing links to resources. Some will align with the week’s Parent Presentation or QuaranTEAM Connects videos. Others may focus on a different Mental Health topic. We will also be sharing printable resources created by our Mental Health team.

Here are this week’s links and resources:

  • Family Connection Conversation Starters - Week Three
    Use these questions to connect at meals, after activities, and at any available window of opportunity. You can even cut them out and place them into a family connect jar!

  • How Long is Your Breath
    A mindful breathing game to help practice taking nice slow, deep, controlled breaths.

  • Thankfuls
    Questions to help you reflect on what you are thankful for.

  • Gratitude Strategy - Mental Subtraction
    This strategy can boost our appreciation for the things in our life that we take for granted.

  • Circle of Control
    This tool can help you process your thoughts and feelings and make you aware of the tools you have to cope and handle different circles that arise.

Don’t forget to check out the resources in the Mental Health section of our website. We are adding new links and resources on a weekly basis.
