CSD Minnesota Advocates and Volunteers are creating Self-Care Kits to offer to our participants throughout the year. Emotional and physical self-care is about taking steps to feel healthy and comfortable, and help cope with and alleviate the short and long term effects of trauma. Self care activities may include healthy eating, exercise, meditation and personal care activities like warm baths and using comforting personal products. We are hoping to create around 150 packages to distribute throughout the next year. We are looking for small or mid-size items or monetary support from community members and community businesses.
