The Crafts for Mental Health Program is a free program for youth ages 9 - 16, to come together and learn healthy skills and outlets to handle mental health struggles. We will be providing and educating young artists on how to seek, find, and utilize resources related to mental health, workplaces, and support.
The future possibilities are endless, during each session, we will be able to celebrate the incredible artistic talents of many youths living in Sudbury.
The program will start on Saturday, July 30th and run every Saturday from 12 pm - 3 pm until August 27th. located downtown at 109 Elm St, Suite 209 at the Sudbury Workers Centre. There will be supplies provided as well as Nigerian Jollof rice and soft drinks will be served daily.
Hurry, there are only 15 spots available for each session! Youth are encouraged to head to bit.ly/Craft4MentalHealth to register for their chosen session and date in advance.
Don’t miss out on a great opportunity to learn and practice a variety of artistic skills. Take part in the careful practices of cultural beading, crafting poetry, basic sewing, painting, and even tie-dying and basic make-up skills.
During the final sessions, on August 27th we will participate in a Youth Art Show, to invite young artists from the program to display their contributions and hard work to the larger public.
