Feelings Thermometers

​​OCMH has two Feelings Thermometers to help children of all ages, and their families, begin to identify their feelings and learn ways to shift their mood when things get tough or behaviors are challenging. Experts agree the first step to managing your emotions is to identify how you are feeling. Give it a try with a child in your life!
