This year has brought much change for many Girl Scouts and their families. Here at GSSEF, we recognize that there is power in learning about the factors that can take a toll on mental health and creating the space for discussion. That's why you're invited to join Girl Scouts of Southeast Florida for Be Kind to Your Mind!

During this week-long virtual program series, girls will explore various topics on youth mental health through expert-led teachings and small group discussions. Participants will also learn strategies for managing stress and change, all while connecting with other girls all around the country.

There will be two program sessions based on age-level. Each program will begin with a presentation facilitated by community experts, followed by breakout rooms where girls will have the chance to take part in a small-group discussion and activities with sister Girl Scouts. The program will focus on five different topics:

What is Mental Health? - Monday, December 7
  • The very first program in our series is here to help lay the foundation for understanding mental health. Girls will learn about what mental health is, common mental health disorders, and how to recognize signs of concern. (Presenter: Coming Soon!)
  • D/B/J - Small groups will learn about emotions through emotion charades.
  • C/S/A - Small groups will learn about mental health and mood disorders by creating mood trackers and emotion wheels.
Coping with Change - Tuesday, December 8
  • Our second program will be a discussion on how change affects one another, how we feel about it, and strategies to adapt to change and manage any anxiety that arises. (Presenter: Leneita Fix, Executive Director of the Reef Institute)
  • D/B/J - Small groups will learning about coping by playing coping bingo
  • C/S/A - Small groups will discuss stress management scenarios and create a reflection flipbook.
Healthy Body, Healthy Mind - Wednesday, December 9
  • What is the relationship between a healthy body and a healthy mind?
  • D/B/J - Small groups will do a short strength workout and learn how to make a great smoothie! (Presenter: Holy Cross Hospital)
  • C/S/A - Small groups will learn goal-setting for health behaviors. (Presenter: Alexandria Van Dyke, Miss Florida 2021 USOA)
Self-Care - Thursday, December 10
  • Our fourth program is a discussion on what self-care is and how to find the best forms for each person, how to identify burnout, a discussion on mindfulness, and common ways people perform self-care acts. (Presenter: Celeste Lord of the Crim Fitness Foundation)
  • D/B/J - Small groups will learn about 3 self-care strategies: physical (dance party), spiritual (meditation), and emotional (acts of kindness)
  • C/S/A - Small groups will learn about gratitude journaling and do a mindful coloring activity together.
Talking about Mental Health - Friday, December 11
  • Now that you’ve learned all about mental health...how do you talk about it? This presentation will teach girls the skills to facilitate difficult conversations, how to check in with your loved ones, and how to talk about mental health. (Presenter: Coming Soon!)
  • All small groups will talk about what they learned during the week.


The presentations will be recorded for those who are unable to make the session. Small group discussions will not be recorded. GSSEF policy does not allow for refunds within 14 days of the program date. For more information, please contact customercare@gssef.org.
