In 2019, mindyourmind travelled to Winnipeg, MB to work with a group of newcomer youth as part of the youthexperts project. As a group we co-created a virtual trivia game called Welcome to Canada. This game was created because the youth recognized the challenges and mental health impacts that can come with moving to a new country and wanted to talk about it in a fun and engaging way . Welcome to Canada provides newcomers with skills and knowledge/ that could support them in the transition of coming to a new country. You can play this game alone or as a group. The game is available in English, French, and Arabic.
mindyourmind has been around for almost two decades, and we have pretty neat stuff in our history. The idea of Throwback Thursdays (#TBT) started because we want to share this past content and some memorable moments too. When it comes to the mental health landscape, some things have stayed the same, while others continue to evolve.
Stay tuned for our next #TBT!
