School Focused Youth Services have brokered funding for 69 interventions across schools in the Bayside, Kingston and Frankston areas.
One of the recent programs which provided students with supportive evidence-based strategies and tools to address self regulation is the i.am.mindful program.
The program, backed by the University of Melbourne, provided students with hands-on activities and materials combined with age appropriate psychoeducation about what is happening to their bodies and how they can learn to take charge.
Following the student session was a staff presentation covering the tools and strategies to ensure staff were equipped with the knowledge of how to support students in the classroom. This provides a wonderful wrap around approach to supporting students developing these important skills.
