Building resilience in children aged 0–12: A practice guide, aims to assist practitioners to promote children’s resilience and raise community awareness about it more broadly. Access it here or download the guide.
The National Mental Health Commission’s recent review of mental health programs and services identified a critical gap in prevention and early intervention resources, supports and services for children from birth to 12 years. Investing in this area is will go a long way to preventing mental health conditions later in life, which is why beyondblue developed this guide as part of the Children’s Resilience Research Project. It aims to create a shared understanding of children’s resilience, and highlight the best ways to build resilience through everyday strategies and structured interventions.
This guide was created for practitioners working across a broad range of settings including early childhood education and care settings, primary schools, welfare and community-based health and mental health settings.
