supporting students to understand what’s going on inside

Mental health affects how we think, feel, and act. These resources can help your students to understand which difficulties are normal, and which require further support. 

Students will learn about stress, worry, anxiety, resilience, and how to deal with their emotions. They’ll recognise unhelpful thought patterns and get tips and coping strategies for their challenges. 

These free resources were created by Kids Helpline Counsellors for schools, parents, caregivers and communities.
