What is a mental health toolkit?
Your "go-to" coping mechanisms that you have access to when you are in need.
These tools may be different for everyone! We recommend keeping your "toolkit" close to you at your workspace or even make copies to take with you for emergencies.
You have two boxes in your toolkit:
Instant Tools: use in distress, during a spiral, or when you are in need of a break
Long-Term Tools: use to regulate your mental and physical health over the long-term
CREATE YOUR OWN
Grab a piece of paper & record 2-3 instant tools and 3-4 long-term tools.
Some examples include:
54321 sensory technique
Go outdoors/fresh air
Specific meditation app
Crisis phone numbers
