Strengthening families, children & young people (Mental Health)
Positive family, school and community connections for children and young people create strong bonds and provide the conditions that make it less likely for young people to engage in substance use and other problem behaviours.
The Resilience Project
The Resilience Project - delivers emotionally engaging programs in schools for students, parents and teachers and provides curriculum for schools accompanied by teacher and student resources. The program uses evidence based approaches and practical strategies to building resilience, in order to develop mental health. Based around the theories of Gratitude, Empathy, Mindfulness and building Emotional Literacy this program builds the capacity of children, adolescents and families to develop strategies to support them through their life experiences to maintain and improve mental health and wellbeing outcomes.
Seven primary schools across the Alpine Shire are implementing either across the whole of primary or from grade three upwards. These are Bright P-12 College, Porepunkah Primary, St Mary’s Primary, Myrtleford P-12, Dederang Primary, Tawonga Primary and Mt Beauty Primary. Marian College are engaging year 7 – 10 students. All schools have entered The Resilience Project as Partnership schools.
