Getting to the root of mental health in DGO notes from Tuesday
TodayStarter: Turn and chat with a neighbor, be ready to share out!
Project Ideas Overview: "We Are Resilient Together"
Overarching goal (rough draft): Build a more resilient community through multiple student-led projects with community partnerships meant to provide much needed mental health resources and form stronger connections.
Some More Ashley Thoughts: Resiliency is about fixing the fence-- if you can help people develop strategies to bounce back from stress and hard times, you're hopefully avoiding having to pull them out of the river later on. However, BOTH prevention and intervention are needed and these project ideas get at both. Moreover, a more sustainable solution is one that helps people and communities be resilient. AND a more sustainable solution is one that can live on beyond our time. The resources we create AND partnerships we form to continue our work and share our work through their networks, will ideally ensure that.
Get in 3 groups, ideally not with anyone from your interview group.
