Mental health programs for early childhood services and primary schools

The Positive Living Skills Wellbeing programs have been independently reviewed and are listed in the ‘Be You’ Programs Directory.
They meet the minimum evidence requirements set by Be You and have been awarded a rating for evidence and implementation.

The Positive Living Skills program is showcased in the NSW Mental Health commission’s Living Well Strategic plan for mental health reform in NSW in the Getting in Earlier domain.

Our approach...

Positive Living Skills was founded on lived experience with anxiety and depression and a driving need to support young people, their educators and families.  

We collaborated with psychologists, teachers and  professionals to create
‘resource pool’ style programs, professional development opportunities and family resources, with concepts backed by decades of research.

When does true '
prevention’ begin when it comes to mental wellbeing?

Our belief is that
prevention MUST begin with children as young as 3 years of age learning habitual skills for wellbeing BEFORE there are signs of mental challenges.
