Why Coping Boxes?
How Do They Help
Preparation for Counseling
The Coping Box serves as a great tool for preparing youth to engage in therapy or counseling. As they use the Coping Box, our hope is that they gain better perspective of themselves and the others.
Sense of Ownership and Control
Youth can often feel as if they have no control over things that directly affect them--this the reality for many. The Coping Box serves as one aspect of a youth's life that they own, look after, and build on.
What We've Learned
Youth are sharing crisis information from the Coping Box with their friends. Even if the youth is not showing signs of mental health challenges or appear to need help, it's still beneficial to introduce them to Project Coping Box. It's better to have the information and not need than to need the information and not have it. Two thirds of Coping Box recipients report willingness to seek mental health help.
