CARE Lab & Challenge

The pandemic has impacted individuals, families, co-workers, and friends in different ways. As part of our efforts to support the creation of a unified cathartic experience, we are looking to enable individuals to share their emotional experiences. We hope to raise awareness about mental health, change the dialogue, and reduce stigma.

Compassion. Acceptance. Respect. Encouragement.


What kind of awareness are we talking about?

    • Shared Stories in written & video/audio/visual format
    • Shared resources to support individuals experiencing stress and anxiety

What is the CARE Lab?

A space to collaborate and communicate ideas, resources, best practices, and awareness to help manage stress, relieve anxiety, and carry our collective burdens together. 

Participants are invited to share stories and resources while creating a safe space for everyone to share and learn from each other. Contributors are invited to host events and webinars that will be accessible through the CARE Lab resources section.

What is the CARE Challenge?

A structured challenge with a timeline where participants can express their feelings and creativity through creating digital projects and submitting them to the Challenge before the deadline on May 10th, 2021. 

Having an opportunity to creatively express emotions is a cathartic way to relieve stress, connect with other people, and explore solutions together. We hope to create a collection of digital stories that connect people together in today’s isolated and increasingly digital society. 

Projects can be composed in whatever way feels natural to you, written, recorded, created, visual, or all of the above.

CARE webinar series

The CARE webinar series are facilitated sessions where participants are able to collaborate with a diverse range of people from both the public and private sectors in order to discuss mental health and well-being. All of the webinars will be recorded and uploaded as free resources in the CARE Lab for participants to access. 

We invite you to organize an event under the CARE Lab & Challenge banner to be included in our series and tell us about it at info@prepr.org
