Perspectives from the Field: The Creation of Mental Wellness Toolkits
A first-year University of Regina nursing student Callie Morhart has created Wellness toolkits, aimed at foregrounding how calm emotions can support better mental health. Currently, there are four toolkits – General Wellness, Sleep, Self-Harm Prevention, and a Kids Calm Down Kit.
Each toolkit has a variety of tools, exercises, and ideas to help manage and improve these different issues related to mental wellness. Each kit is a prototype meant for places like schools, hospitals, and daycares to use as an example to create their own personalized kits. One toolkit in the midst of creation is a wellness kit for long-term care patients with dementia.
