Resilience program for Stawell

Resilience Project

Renowned community happiness-building program The Resilience Project will roll out in Stawell district schools and the general public next month.

The program provides practical, evidence-based, and positive mental-health plans to build resilience and happiness within students and adults.

More than 500 schools across the country as well as many elite sporting teams have used the national program.

Northern Grampians Shire Council and Stawell Learning Alliance are supporting program’s introduction to Stawell.

A community session outlining the program will be at 7pm on January 30 at Stawell Entertainment Centre.

Stawell district primary and secondary school student sessions will be on January 31 and February 1.

The Resilience Project’s mission is to help people become happier.

Figures show one in five adults experience mental ill-health annually and 65 percent of adolescents failing to seek help for mental illness.

The Resilience Project also has an app that can be downloaded to any smartphone, and acts as a daily well-being journal, prompting users to record their emotions as well as moments of gratitude and mindfulness practice.

Northern Grampians mayor Kevin Erwin said it was great the project was coming to the shire.

“We try to build resilience in our community to deal with the tougher times. It’s so important these days to develop strategies to enable people to cope in those times.”
