Professional Development

Jo Devin, Co - Founder

While teaching could be said to be one of the most rewarding professions, it can also be one of the most challenging, and reports of educator stress and burn out are on the rise.


We created the PLS programs with educators in mind, to support them with the tools and the confidence to teach young people mental wellbeing skills. 

Educator wellbeing is a top priority for us also, which is why educators who move forward with Positive Living Skills have complimentary access to a range of Professional Development sessions.

We recently released the Positive Living Skills White paper,

"Toward a Mentally Healthy Generation. Flattening the curve in the 2020 mental illness epidemic." Click this button to instantly download the White Paper and please share your feedback with us. 

'Very enjoyable presentation - relevant content delivered by real people.'  Melissa, Sydney 

Self care is so important.  When you take time to replenish your spirit, it allows you to serve others from the overflow.  You cannot serve from an empty vessel.
