Summer vacation is here and that means kids have a lot of new free time on their hands.
While video games and apps like TikTok and now whatever Threads is can be time-consuming, playing outside the old-fashioned way is still an important part of development.
Chelsea Ohlmann, Clinical Manager of CASA’s Core Program and a registered psychologist, joined Global News Morning to discuss why playing outside should be on everyone’s to-do list.
Watch CASA on Global News Morning Edmonton at 7:20 on the first Thursday of every month. Each “Your Mental Health” segment features a specialist from CASA talking about relevant mental health topics to children and families in our community.
