Grant 695: Feed, Read, and Grow: Pediatric Anxiety Management Videos

Feed, Read, and Grow is a multi-agency project focused on improving access to health services, food, and literacy resources in the community. We will produce videos with content developed by the creative wellness company JOI NEURON based on recommendations from pediatricians and mental health professionals and delivered through original characters and educational songs in English and Spanish. These videos will be freely available on YouTube and Vimeo. The goal is to engage caregivers and their children in a fun learning experience about the important topic of anxiety. Through a partnership between the VCOM library and regional public libraries, these videos will serve as educational resources for our community to share knowledge about ways to promote wellness, model healthy interactions between children and caregivers, give tips for management of anxiety for different age groups, and build resilience.
