Supporting Early Learning Centres and Primary Schools to lead a
culture of emotional wellbeing in their communities
School communities are struggling with violence, bullying, anxiety, depression and more, and the statistics are getting worse. Educators are more stressed than ever, curriculums are packed, and families are wondering how to support their kids and themselves to be balanced and fulfilled in life and learn essential resilience skills and long term habits to support emotional wellbeing. Once young people reach high school it can be very challenging to treat or reverse the effects of poor self esteem, and developed problems are incredibly challenging to turn around.
Primary Schools and Early Learning Centres are the focal points of our communities, and we all want to live and have our children learn in safe supportive and inclusive environments.
A whole of community approach is needed.
If you are a teacher, a Wellbeing Coordinator, School Counsellor, School Principal or Early Learning Centre Director or owner or lead teacher then you NEED to know HOW to embed a culture of Wellbeing throughout your School or Centre community because clearly something needs to change or the current mental illness statistics will get worse if a proactive collaborative approach is not taken.
The Positive Living Skills initiative is a proactive and truly preventative approach that can help build long term essential skills for emotional wellbeing, and support Schools to implement positive behaviour.
