May is Mental Health Awareness Month and in recognition countless local area partners have come together in The Shine Guide to offer over 50 free child and teen classes, events and workshops all aimed at providing young people and their families with new experiences and paths to mental wellness. You’ll find everything from nature play and hiking experiences to art and music classes to yoga and dance classes and more! Each experience will provide participants with an idea or action that they can take forward into their lives to do on their own when they need a moment of peace or a break. 

Many of the classes require advance registration, so sit down with the children and teens in your life tonight and see what new things they can try in May that help to shine a light on mental and emotional wellness.
