POP-UP Festival Boost Mental Health for Kids Q2

POP-UP Festival in Osaka Japan
POP-UP Festival in Osaka Japan

Hello friends, 

We wanted to send you an update and share all the news about our new initiative– 2022 Cohort of Wellbeing Advocates. 

The Six Seconds Wellbeing Advocates Program is a generative, fast-paced immersion supporting emerging wellbeing advocates to develop their leadership abilities, expand their emotional intelligence, and practice a community-oriented design process for effective interventions.  Interns are individuals ages 18+ from a diverse set of backgrounds with interest in making positive change in the wellbeing of their communities, and achieving personal growth.

Over the course of the program, these individuals will collaborate in small groups to develop interventions aimed to increase wellbeing. Interns will be encouraged to focus their projects on communities or issues that are salient to them. Projects can include, and are certainly not limited to: a social media campaign, short film, app, activity, zine, lesson plan, product, or event. 

Here’s some topics the team have identified:

  • “I'm very interested in working with young adolescents in underrepresented communities in discussing the prevalence of mental disorders that are often ignored in these communities”

  • “I am particularly interested in learning more about how the pandemic has affected the mental health of young people.”

  • “I’m interested in helping to end the stigma surrounding mental illness/mental health, especially in minority communities. As someone who has a mental illness and is a part of the Black community, I’m very passionate about this issue. Also, I’m passionate about promoting mindfulness as it’s a tool I use to help my own well-being.”

  • “College students that are dealing with the stresses that a "hyper-connected world" can bring, because this is something that had a big impact on my mental health in college and I want to be able to help others that have the same struggles.”

This project is possible thanks to you. As we celebrate our 25th year bringing emotional intelligence resources to people globally, we are truly grateful for your continous support in helping raise awareness for mental health and emotional wellbeing. Thank you for being a part of our Six Seconds community and helping us to bring emotional intelligence to one billion people.

Warmly,

Patty Freedman
