Emotional Wellness Toolkit

These are hard times! Now more than ever, we are learning about the importance of self-care, community care and emotional wellness. Join us in learning to take care of our emotional bodies with each other. We will talk about all the ways that we are taking care of ourselves, engage in a short meditation practice, and put together our own wellness kits. Together, we will write our intentions and affirmations for ourselves and be a witness to each other’s affirmations. Participants will have their personal emotional wellness kits put together by the end of the session!

Participants have the option of being delivered an emotional wellness goodie bag with affirmation art, snacks, safer sex supplies and more!

We will be participating in this event through a virtual platform called zoom.

Sorry, this event is sold out.

YouthCO's office is located on the unceded traditional territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Tsleil-Waututh people. Our programs take place on unceded, ancestral, and traditional territories of many Indigenous nations across what is now called BC.

YouthCO believes that all youth have the right to accessible and affirming information about our health. We also know each of us has a unique relationship to our bodies, sex, sexuality, substance use, and harm reduction. For many of us, the words other people use for our bodies and their functions are not the words we use for ourselves. Throughout our website, YouthCO uses words for bodies and sex that we know will not reflect the full diversity of our communities. We have tried to, where possible, be as expansive with our language as we know how to while being as specific as possible. As youth leading the HIV movement, we too are learning about the best words for our experiences and do not do this perfectly. We invite any feedback about the language used on our website to help us move forward in the best ways for all youth in our communities!
