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.

Eight schools across the Alpine Shire are implementing the program. All schools have entered The Resilience Project as Partnership schools. These schools are; 

  • Bright P-12 College – Whole of Primary
  • Dederang Primary School – Whole of Primary
