Child Mind Institute

Today, many of us are serving as coaches and mentors. We are navigating new ways to

create connections with young people when we aren’t physically with them. And for those

of us at home with young people, we should talk with them about what’s happening.


To build these new types of connections, it is important to start by finding ways to check in

with them and help them adjust to their new reality.


This resource from Child Mind Institute, available in English and Spanish, provides talking

points on how to respond to their needs through conversation – a great starting point to

build on throughout the duration of this time at home.

Looking for Other Ways to Help Your Community?

 This is a program where you are trained for free on line and then can volunteer to man a text line to help people that are struggling. Many are asking what can I do? I have so much time in my hands... Anyway thought it was worth sending as for some might be exactly the way they can help. https://www.crisistextline.org/become-a-volunteer/
