Primary School Wellbeing Program
Congratulations on your commitment to the educational wellbeing of your school community.
The current situation.
The current mental health situation for young people in Australia is frightening:
• The number of deaths by suicide in young Australians is the highest it has been in 10 years1
• One in seven young Australians experience a mental health condition.2
• Suicide is the biggest killer of young Australians and accounts for the deaths of more young people than car accidents3
• Evidence suggests three in four adult mental health conditions emerge by age 24 and half by age 144
Given these staggering statistics, there could be several students in each classroom of 30 who could be heading for or already experiencing a mental health problem.
We believe this MUST change.
Our core Philosophy
At Positive Living Skills, we believe that every child has the capacity to reach his or her own unique potential and that every child in today’s world must learn proactive and practical ways to look after their own mental wellbeing. If this learning begins in Early Childhood and Preschool, and continues through Primary School, then when children are ready to transition into High School they have developed a solid awareness of how they think and feel, and they can create a procedural memory for how to calm themselves when feeling stressed, and they have tools to apply to help them to self-direct their thoughts, feelings and behaviours toward a positive life experience.
We are also committed to supporting and enhancing teacher wellbeing, while also supporting parents, carers and the wider community.
Our vision is to significantly and positively impact the alarming statistics of anxiety, depression and suicide, within one generation.
