Research shows that a quarter of Australian teenagers are now living with mental illness and devastatingly, so are 1 in 7 kids between 6–12 years old.
Students have experienced huge disruptions over the past two years. Now, more than ever, it is important to connect with our students, learn how they feel and provide the support and skills they need to thrive throughout their lives.
Together we will help start important conversations and focus on the emotional needs of students through a National Check-in Week. Through connection, conversation and continuous check-ins, we will help students better understand and manage their emotions and relationships in a positive, healthy way.
Parents, educators, carers and communities can be empowered to track and positively respond to students’ emotional needs to promote wellbeing and learning.
And it all starts with us.
