EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE (Stage 4, Stage 5, Stage 6)
Our evidence-informed sessions have been created for students to improve mental health literacy and to provide information on support options available to young people.
Available from 14-28 June 2022
Run by professionally qualified Kids Helpline counsellors via video link.
Emotional Intelligence sessions are a fantastic opportunity for students of all ages to meet a Kids Helpline counsellor and to explore the service together. This topic builds students’ knowledge of emotions, mental health and wellbeing in order to provide them with effective emotional self-regulation tools.
The learning intentions for this topic includes an understanding of emotional responses and a knowledge of three evidence-based, emotional self-regulation strategies, as well as an awareness of mental health and strategies to support peers who may be at-risk.
- Purpose of Emotions
- Brain basics
- Stress Response (fight/flight/freeze)
- Mental health literacy (anxiety & depression)
- Coping strategies
- Peer support basics
The ideal sessions run for approximately 30-50 minutes per topic; the ideal number of students per session is approximately a class size. We recommend a maximum of 50-60 students per session.

Our virtual sessions provide an opportunity for young people to meet real life Kids Helpline counsellors.
For over 30 years Australia’s kids and young people have been turning to our professional, specialised counsellors, no matter who they are, where they live or what they want to talk about.
For some young people, connecting with Kids Helpline has been a life-saving experience, while for others it’s about practical help and emotional support at the critical moment they need someone to listen.
