What is a #ConvoPlate ?
#ConvoPlate is a hand painted stoneware plates that are circulated around the community to get people talking about mental health. Each one is different and was created by a member of our local community with their own special message and meaning.
Our goal is to help make Mental Health part of our every day conversation. Just like eating right and exercising supports physical health, we all need to take active steps to support our mental health.
Our hope is that the #ConvoPlate inspires people have a conversations about mental health. If we can keep the conversation about mental health going, we can break the stigma and increase the number of youth who access mental health services.
