Working with our schools and community to improve mental health and wellbeing in the Upper Hunter.

This is the first time in Australia and possibly the world, that an entire cluster of schools and their community in one geographic location, have embraced positive education to improve mental health and wellbeing.

Why?

  • One in four young Australians aged 16–24 years has a mental health issue.
  • The World Health Organisation (WHO) predicts that by 2030, depression will be the leading cause of disease burden globally.

What is Mental Health?

A state of wellbeing in which every individual realises their own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully and is able to make a contribution to their community.  The World Health Organisation (WHO).
