Conversation Starter: Youth Mental Health during COVID




Pandemic. Just the word can create feelings of fear, anxiety, and uncertainty. Right now, our girls could be experiencing some or all those feelings, but their reactions or coping behaviors could be completely different than expected. Join us on January 26, 2021, from 6-7 p.m. as we talk with Dr. Laura Anthony, a child psychologist at Children’s Hospital Colorado in the Pediatric Mental Health Institute and an Associate Professor at the CU Anschutz School of Medicine. Dr. Anthony will offer advice on how to recognize the warning signs that indicate your girls may be struggling due to the pressures of COVID-19.

Watch now: Conversation Starters – Let’s Talk about Differences

Diversity, equity, and inclusion have been core values of Girl Scouts since its founding in 1912. As we continue empowering youth to make the world a better place, we are excited to have brought together experts from across Colorado to have important conversations about difference, race, and racism. Experts from Girl Scouts of Colorado, Children’s Hospital Colorado, and Colorado Mountain College came together in July and August 2020 to answer questions about these important topics through one conversation for parents and caregivers, and one conversation for children. Anne Trujillo from Denver7 moderated each conversation.

You can now watch both conversations on Denver7 through your Roku, Amazon Fire, Apple TV, or others streaming device. You can also watch on the Denver7 and Girl Scouts of Colorado YouTube channels.

Special thanks to our experts:

  • Lindsay Standish, Chief Outdoor Program Officer, Girl Scouts of Colorado
  • Robert Franklin, II,  Diversity, Health Equity & Inclusion Program Manager, Children’s Hospital Colorado
  • Dr. Brandi Freeman, Pediatrics, Children’s Hospital Colorado
  • Faridhe Rodriguez, Director, El Busesito Preschool, Valley Settlement Project & Colorado Mountain College student (parent & caregiver conversation only)
  • Rob Nesby, Preschool teacher, Early Learning Center in Aspen, CO & Colorado Mountain College student (child conversation only)

As you and your children continue learning about topics related to diversity, equity, and inclusion, we invite you to explore our Diverse. Inclusive. Together. program, adapted from our Girl Scout sisters in Minneapolis and explore all the resources provided on our website.

Girl Scouts of Colorado Unveils New Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Programming

Girl Scouts of Colorado (GSCO) is proud to unveil ways for everyone, not just girls or Girl Scouts, to develop an appreciation for the rich diversity of various cultures in their community and around the world.

GSCO is partnering with Children’s Hospital Colorado, Colorado Mountain College, Denver Public Schools, and Denver7 on a new Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion patch program, adapted from a program developed by our Girl Scout sisters in Minneapolis. The program is designed to help participants start the conversation about race and racism by learning to appreciate diversity and honor and celebrate differences. Grant funding will provide FREE patches to the first 750 Girl Scouts of Colorado girl members who complete all activity and reporting requirements. Use this online form* to request your patch.

In addition, “Conversation Starters: Let’s Talk Differences” virtual roundtables on July 30 and August 13 will give families the tools they need to begin talking about issues related to race and racism. Both parents and children will deepen their understanding and respect for people who may be different from them and learn how to better relate to others. RSVP now for the Conversation Starters and submit your questions for our experts.

* Please note – Free patches are for current Colorado Girl Scouts only who have fully completed the patch program. The form must be completed once for each individual Girl Scout. Non-Girl Scouts can fill out this online form to let us know they have completed the program, receive their digital patch, and/or order a physical patch.
