We live in a world of uncertainty where our anxiety and stress levels have been put to the test more than ever before. In the past few months, we have been forced to stay at home for weeks at a time, and our personal space has been narrowed down. This has made many of us realize that, before the pandemic, we never really paid as close attention to our mental health as we should.
Mental health is a key aspect of our wellbeing, no matter how old we are, which is why we should start paying attention to it from a young age. Many mental health issues start showing up at a young age, or even arise from traumas people experienced when they were younger. Parents should be cognisant and keep an eye out for their kids’ mental health from day one.
This is why it is so important for brands like Scenties to support organizations like Child Mind Institute, an independent national nonprofit dedicated to transforming the lives of children and families struggling with mental health and learning disorders. Scenties strives to bring happiness to children with their array of scented accessories, with their most recent launch being a set of face masks with scented ear loops. The masks themselves aren’t scented, but they are made with velcro sewn onto the sides so that kids are able to interchange the ear loops from one scent to another by simply sticking them on and off.
Kara Dahn, the founder of Scenties, knew from day one that she wanted to support organizations that resonate with her. So, as a mom with a history of anxiety, and now seeing her children struggle with anxiety too, Kara didn’t think twice when the opportunity to support the Child Mind Institute came her way. Kara is just one of many people who support this incredible cause. Celebrities like Emma Stone, Michael Phelps, Lena Dunham, Emma Chamberlain, Margot Robbie, Octavia Spencer, Bill Hader, Kevin Love, and Jonah Hill have been involved with Child Mind Institute for a while now, raising awareness for kids’ mental health and helping children reach their full potential.
This year more than ever, the clinicians at Child Mind Institute deserve to be honored and thanked for their remarkable commitment to providing mental health care during the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, Kara will be joining Emma Stone, Andrew Feldman, Kate Snow, Jeremy Strong, and many other celebrities at Child Mind Institute’s virtual 11th Annual Benefit on Tuesday, December 8th from 7:30 to 8pm EST to do just that.
