Good mental health helps us bounce forward when life gets tough – and let’s face it, each day offers us plenty to worry about! More than ever we need strategies for maintaining a healthy mind and keeping perspective. What better way to learn habits of healthy thinking than through authentic and genuine conversation with people we can trust.

The cards have been grouped into three big ideas which all contribute, in different ways to mental health:
· Lifestyle Matters
· Dispositions Matter
· Feelings Matter
Use this resource to inform valuable conversations, develop lessons or explore a project with your child, your classroom or your team. Because you matter.
Hard Cover Children's Picture Book: My Family is a team
Ages 3-6 years
Supporting Mental Health Discussions
This is an important and valuable book for any teacher, educator, parent or family member who knows or has had a mental illness in their life.
A mental illness is a health problem that significantly affects how a person feels, thinks, behaves, and interacts with other people. In Australia, it is estimated that 45% of people will experience a mental health condition in their lifetime (www.beyondblue.org.au).
It is vital that we talk about mental health with children and their families. Through this book you will find the language to articulate and communicate the important messages related to mental health.
