Burlington Public Library – $1,600 (Seed Grant)
Building Resiliency through Mental Health Training and Artistic Discovery
This grant will be used to bring in an award-winning writer, performance artist, social worker, and psychotherapist to run a series of workshop at the library for youth on understanding mental health, self-care, relaxation and meditation techniques; and to assist them with identity discovery through art, writing, and performance. This will support the library’s mission of encouraging lifelong learning.
Workshops will help to support the mental health needs of our community and help Burlington youth increase their resiliency and equip them with strategies that will allow for improved mental health and increased well-being.
