ReachOut before you freak out

This resource is designed to facilitate classroom conversations and activities around normalising self-help and help-seeking for students in Years 11 and 12. It also examines how experiencing change and challenges is a normal part of growing up. It uses a series of personal, everyday stories from young people to show that things can improve, and that young people have the power to help themselves cope with whatever life throws at them.

These classroom activities are designed to promote critical thinking and problem solving in safe, respectful and connected classroom environments where students feel able to learn and ask questions.
