Micah Gives FAQs
As our world continues to evolve mental health and self care are becoming highly discussed topics without our society. Our dependence on social media, 3D realities, and the internet in general is without a doubt changing our children’s mental health experiences.
Also, with the rise of cyber bullying through social media and online gaming we want to help.
The Mighty Crew is all about reenforcing healthy mental habits. Just as we teach good hygiene and good study habits to help prepare our children for life, our team feels that teaching mentally healthy habits are just as important as teaching brushing your teeth twice a day, exercising for at least 30 minutes, or getting 8 hours of sleep.
We feel that if we can create healthy mental habits early in life we will be able to help fuel a mentally healthier generation.
Is this program only for children that are struggling mentally or physically?
Not at all! Our goal is to help everyone Be Brave. Some children may have a diagnosis of anxiety or some other mental health concern and we are so glad to have them join us as well!
What do you mean “training”?
We have several psychologist, curriculum experts, teachers, and adolescent behavioral specialists working with us to create fun and interactive programming for children from 5-18. They will engage in virtual gaming, receive challenges to complete over a designated time period in their own homes, hear stories of other children and how they are using their mental health training in their every day lives.
Will this be virtual or in person?
In order to reach as many members as possible in a safe way all events will be virtual unless otherwise noted.
