In partnership with Australian based organisation The Resilience Project, we deliver emotionally engaging programs to schools, providing practical, evidence-based, positive mental health strategies to build resilience and happiness. Through presentations, school curriculum, teacher diaries and our app, we seek to help young New Zealanders become mentally healthy.
Our approach is to work with the whole school community including teachers, students and parents helping them understand the importance of practicing and implementing key strategies to build resilience and drive sustainable change. In 2020, we are delivering the program into four primary and intermediate schools.
We know that New Zealand mirrors the current state of mental health in young people in Australia as outlined below.
