Children and youth have faced too many unprecedented challenges and their self-esteem is an integral facet to every part of their health and wellness. Embrace Health Foundation places a lens on the stimuli and impact that self-esteem has on the lives of children and youth daily. They have a right to develop and sustain the most adaptive self-esteem to support their health and wellness moving forward in their lives.
Embrace Health Foundation supports the self-esteem and mental health of children and youth. The self-esteem research and development at Embrace Health Foundation identifies key indicators and metrics that impact their health and wellbeing. Self-esteem is a disruptive indicator and is truly a pulse point in society. It is a viable indicator in health assessments for individuals and society. It is a brilliant focal point and when supported and studied it supports advancements in the health and wellness for children and youth. Advancing self-esteem research and development has brought insights on the human behavior and how society has built itself around understanding and utilizing self-esteem. Embrace Health Foundation has looked closer at these experiences and stimuli as they affect the health and wellbeing of children and youth.
The self-esteem of children and youth is an integral part of their mental, physical and psychological and social wellbeing. Prior to the pandemic the self-esteem indicators revealed excessive stimuli and stress for young individuals. Upon reviewing data, intra and post pandemic. There is an increase need to support this amazing facet of their health and wellness. Embrace Health Foundation raises the urgent need to support these young individuals and reduce their stress and build mindfulness and wellness into their everyday lives as a best practice in coping and resilience.
Embrace Health Foundation’s self-esteem research and development supports a vast data base that reflects the need to support self-awareness, self-reflection and capacity for self and others. The various indicators and stimuli have supported resources and outreach that resonates compassion for self and others. The resources and research are all reflective to inspire reflective capacities that support stress reduction, personal goals and creative expression. The self-esteem reflections advance an individual's unique positioning and ideations. Reflections have themes such as personal stress, mental health practices or bullying and even play and communication. The self-esteem assessment tool supports reflections that have no right or wrong influence but are a reflection of one's individuality and supports awareness for self-compassion and compassion for others.
Creative ways to develop mindfulness and self-expression are supported with reflections, journalling and self-awareness. Embrace Health Foundation has been an advocate for change and innovation in the charitable sector.
Innovative approaches have supported resources and the dissemination of data and early mindfulness strategies through resources and books. Although sitting in the domain of our innovation focus Embrace Health Innovations supports the upcoming development of technology for children and youth as one of our most amazing endeavors all with original links to the self-esteem research and development from Embrace Health Foundation where philanthropy can support innovation for an accelerated impact and a great cause.
Supporting innovations and charitable missions is a symbiosis like a catalyst and is time the Canadian Government conceptualize and support and advance the two sectors to maximize benefit into the lives of children and youth.
