Girl Scout Katelyn created new resources for middle-school students at Salem Consolidated Grade School, Paris Consolidated Grade School, and Boys & Girls Club of Kenosha to help build fundamentals related to mental health during the COVID-19 pandemic. Katelyn led a virtual and in-person mental health seminar, teaching informative and engaging stress and anxiety relieving activities. With the support of her team, she assembled 1,200 mental health care packages that included handmade bead fidget toys, notebooks, bubbles, and mental health educational pamphlets. Katelyn served more than 1,200 middle school students, educators, administrators, community members, and community organizations with her new resources. Katelyn’s survey data proved that students felt more comfortable seeking help from these resources. Katelyn also built a website to share all the mental health resources she created. Way to go, Girl Scout!
