Moodie Mondays (Just for YOUTH)
This year has been hard. We asked kids and teens what might help... and they came up with the idea of "Moodie Mondays."
Moodie Mondays is an online space just for Ramsey County youth/teens. You can be moody- or not- no judgment here! It's a place for healing, belonging, and hope. It's a place to learn and share and make connections with other youth who care about mental health. Best of all--- it's new so you can make it whatever you want it to be!
Resources, Prizes and Gifts- YES!
Each month, we'll get together through Zoom to watch a movie, do an activity like art, music, or yoga, bring in a guest speaker, host a virtual talent show or have an online pizza party! Some events will be for teens, some for youth, and some for "all ages" but we'll ALWAYS give away cool resources, prizes, and gifts!
How are YOU feeling?
Go to your Bulletin Board and use the "check in" section to share your ideas and feelings with other youth or teens who are coping with mental health or stress.
Upload a song, poem, or drawing. Post a photo. Link to a youtube video. Or journal your thoughts for others to read.
So... what is a Moodie, you ask?
Well, it's kind of like a "Foodie"...
a person with a particular interest in food; a gourmet.
a person with a particular interest in moods and mental health; a learner, teacher, or advocate for mental health.
OK. OK. We made up the word. But we're hoping it catches on! (I mean, somebody invented the word "selfie", right?) With your help to spread the word... we think everybody is going to want to be a Moodie!
