One of the most effective ways to fight stigma is to change perceptions from a young age. Working with young Australians aged 7-14 years old allows us to reduce stigma and teach skills that can become a part of healthy lifestyle as they move through life’s stages. This workshop allows participants to develop an awareness and understanding of wellness. This will assist in not only lowering the impact of potential mental health difficulties, but also enable them to develop coping skills to deal with some of life’s challenges. Additionally, we will work through wellness activities to help develop skills in gratitude and mindfulness.
Participants develop an understanding of how to live a healthy and happy life as they move through the life stages. They will walk away with tips and techniques that can assist in lowering potential mental health difficulties.
