The Resilience Project launches program targeted to support early years happiness
A positive mental health program, with a focus on building mental resilience amongst educators, children, parents, and the community during the early years of a child’s life has been launched recently by The Resilience Project.
With a mission to teach positive mental health strategies to help people become happier and more resilient, the Resilience Project said it was thrilled to launch the 21-week program focusing on the key pillars of Gratitude, Empathy, Mindfulness and Emotional Literacy.
Those participating in the program will also have access to a four-part educator professional development digital series, and an online online resource hub which contains up-to-date information, resources, newsletters and educator self-care activities.
The project has also developed an early years family journal, which links the key concepts and pillars to the home environment, as well as activities and ideas which families can complete together to foster and grow connections.
Program designers hope that completing the program will introduce positive mental health strategies at a key point in children’s emotional development, as well as involving parents and carers in learning practical strategies to build resilience for themselves as parents and within their children.
Educators, the designers said, will develop “capacity and awareness of practical strategies to build resilience within the community and within their workplace by completing the program”.
