Event Overview: Kids Helpline @ School is a free program which allows Australian primary schools to invite Kids Helpline counsellors into their classrooms via video link or phone.Students get the opportunity to talk with a counsellor during a group discussion about things impacting on their lives. Sessions aim to improve mental health literacy in primary school aged children, promote resilience and encourage help seeking behaviours.The classroom based sessions do not offer individual counselling, however, the students are introduced to Kids Helpline which is our 24 hour, 7 day a week, free, telephone and online counselling service for 5 to 25 year olds. Students will be invited to contact us should they express the need for assistance during the classroom session.
Additional Booking Instructions: Each session is available to 1 classroom size of students (roughly 30 students or less).We currently have 10 session topics available. Each session topic runs for approximately 45-60 minutes and is very interactive between the Counsellor and students.
