Boredom busters: Beating boredom through wellness

The Challenge

When the COVID-19 pandemic began in March of 2020, we witnessed a significant increase in mental health and addiction concerns with our high-risk youth in Thunder Bay. Many in-person programs and resources that were previously available were put on pause. We wanted to respond to the need for support, recreation, and healthy activities.

We developed a program to beat the COVID-19 lockdown boredom with resilience and engagement, and give youth something fun to look forward to.
