Mental Health Virtual Care Package

The following information is shared from Community Health Programs associated with Heart of New Ulm and the New Ulm Medical Center … with Minnesota’s K-12 school closures, we are all living in a time of uncertainty. Stress levels are rising not only for adults, but also for our kids and teens. Your Change to Chill and Health Powered Kids teams are here to support you through a Mental Health Virtual Care Package for students, teachers, and parents who are all adjusting to distance learning.  In our care package, you’ll find activities for de-stressing that can be done as a class, as a family, one-on-one with a child or as an individual. We know our community can build resilience through stress prevention and reduction activities like physical activity, mindfulness and more to get through this challenging period. Check out Change to Chill Virtual Care Package.pdf and Health Powered Kids Virtual Care Package.pdf for resources to help you and your families cope.
