Enhance the workshop experience with an interactive game called “Reach Out.” It is designed to deliver mental health information to young people, and was co-developed by a team of youth and mindyourmind (a nationally recognized youth mental health program that develops relevant tools around the topic of mental health). In November 2014, a customized version of Reach Out was co-created with these partners and the YMHAC Youth Leads, and re-branded as the Network of Champions Reach Out game.
TIP! youth leads should facilitate the network of champions reach out game.
How it works: Network of Champions Reach Out is an interactive game which gets students into teams and challenges them to have conversations about what they know and don’t know about mental health issues, substance use/misuse and mental health advocacy.
