Yes, I'd love to be able to prototype this in my own community. Thank you for the link, it was very helpful!

I am currently looking for ways (and people) to help make this happen in my area. If you or anyone knows of any resources in the Bay Area, I'd be very thankful!

Hi Mitika, thanks for the feedback. I'm still working on fleshing out the idea, and completely agree that we don't want teachers/parents to become bias towards certain emotions. I agree that we need to strengthen the role of creative catalysts to get students to feel confident enough to truly share their emotions and not create what they think their teachers/parents/peers want them to create.

Courtney Maya commented on Caregivers Wellness Toolkit Updated

Congrats on this winning concept! If you are interested in pursuing your idea further and need some help, I'd love to be a part of this project. At age 23 I was thrown into being a caregiver for my mother, and something like this would've been so helpful and comforting. I'd love to be able to help new caregivers and share my insights and experiences.
