LIVIN News & Blogs
A LIVINWell session helps to develop participants understanding of the mental health continuum, as well as teaching them the warning signs and symptoms that someone may be struggling. Furthermore, in an easy-to-understand, straight forward approach, it explores how to support someone/kick start a conversation and where to go for support.
Traditionally, September is a popular month for LIVINWell sessions due to schools and workplaces wishing to acknowledge R U OK? day. This year was no different! We were able to deliver 44 sessions to 20 schools, 20 workplaces and 4 community groups. The message that ‘It Ain’t Weak to Speak’ was delivered to more than 5,000 people right across the country. Facilitators have visited Melbourne, Sydney, Boulder (Western Australia), Townsville, and many locations across South East Queensland. The reach of attendees went beyond these locations as many workplaces chose to livestream their session across multiple job sites.
“On behalf of the students and staff I would like to pass on our heartfelt thanks and gratitude for the presentation our Year 10 students received on Friday afternoon. The facilitator spoke beautifully, engaging the students with a delicate blend of data, instruction and personal experience. I have received overwhelmingly positive review from all staff and students in attendance. I know the students took a lot from the presentation, and I have plans to integrate strategies presented into our wellbeing processes starting next term.” – High School Teacher
“On behalf of the school, I would like to thank the facilitator for his excellent, insightful presentations regarding mental health. The feedback from the staff and students has been very complimentary. Thank you also to LIVIN and its sponsors for providing such a valuable program for youth at schools. We hope to re-engage again at some time again in the future.” – Guidance Officer
