Share Your Recipe: St Matthew School

We all know the things that we need to do to improve our physical health, but we often lack the tools to improve our mental health.  Whether it is going for a walk, playing your favourite sport, or reaching out to family or friends in times of need we all have ingredients to improve our mental wellness.  These recipes need to be shared.

The students at St. Matthew Elementary are asking you to share your mental health recipe so they can cook with it.
