Half of all mental health issues emerge by the age of 14.
Research has shown that early intervention can prevent lifelong difficulties with mental health issues. Specialised intervention aimed at Australian school children is essential to breaking the cycle. A study conducted in 2015 by BeyondBlue, revealed that 47 per cent of school principals, believed they did not have the time, tools or resources required to promote positive mental health in their schools. The WOW Educational Program (WOWEP) provides young people with the appropriate skills to manage the ups and downs that life can throw at us.
WOWEP promotes positive mental health, resilience and support if challenges are identified. In addition, we recognise the importance of family and a solid support network, so we incorporate family into the mental health conversation, and additional education for carers.
Stay tuned for our new look program, with training and resources for teachers and parents to engage in mental health discussions appropriately with children.
