Girl Scout Gold Award Ideas – Mental Health

Is your high school Girl Scout interested in mental health awareness? Check out these past Gold Award projects for inspiration.

Suicide Prevention. A Girl Scout Ambassador created a local program to help teens and others who may be considering suicide.

Blankets of Comfort. A Girl Scout project focused on providing a sense of comfort for children in foster care. The project included a local blanket drive for children, and the blankets will be provided to children as they enter foster care and can be taken with them when they leave.

Addiction and Recovery. A Girl Scout organized a community forum on addiction and recovery issues.

Hazing, Binge Drinking and Other College Issues. A Girl Scout Ambassador learned that four out of five college students drink and that half of those are binge drinking. She created a “House of Horrors” to open a discussion on alcohol abuse, sexual assault, hazing and other issues at college.

Disclaimer: Often when I share highest award projects on social media, I get asked, “How is that a ___ project?” While there are formal written guidelines for the Girl Scout Gold Award, each Girl Scout council may have additional steps or interpretations of those guidelines.
