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 By Request
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.
