What are Connect and Thrive! Programs?
GenNow’s Connect and Thrive! Programs are firmly based in social and emotional learning (SEL). SEL is the process through which youth and young adults understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.
Why Mental Health First Aid
Approximately 20% of Australian adults and 15% of adolescents experience a common mental illness each year. Completing an MHFA Course will help you to develop the skills to support a young person in your care, a friend, family member or co-worker. Having mental health first aid skills means that you can assist someone developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis and make a real difference to your community.
