Mental Wellness & Inclusion

Mental wellness starts here.

The challenges of today’s world don’t only affect grownups. Young people—especially girls—are facing a mental health crisis of their own. Supporting them as they grow and face life’s complexities is a top priority.

Girl Scouts plus their families, caregivers, and volunteers now have access to these mental wellness resources from Girl Scouts and our trusted partners. From new activities to trainings, you’ll find what you need to get started.

Resilient. Ready. Strong. Patch Program

Girl Scouts aren't immune from feeling stressed. This patch will help them be ready for when things get tough.  Learn more.

Get started today and see your Daisy grow into their strongest, most resilient self.
