Kids Helpline @ High School aims to improve student mental health literacy, coping and resilience skills and promote help-seeking behaviours through free counsellor-led sessions via online delivery
The evidence-informed program was developed through consultation with North QLD secondary schools in 2018, and written to align with the General Capabilities of the Australian Curriculum and the Health & Physical Education Content Descriptors.
The program is designed to complement a whole-school prevention approach, assist secondary school staff in delivering evidence informed strategies to promote mental health & wellbeing, and expand upon classroom discussions of mental health, respectful relationships, online wellbeing & resilience.
Kids Helpline sessions are delivered online free of cost via a schools preferred video-conferencing platform, and onsite in a North QLD region once a term.
