What is it?
An Optus sponsored program allowing primary school students to access Kids Helpline counsellors in their classroom.
Who is it for?
All primary schools across Australia.
Harnessing technology for good
This innovative early intervention and prevention program uses technology to connect primary school aged children with knowledge that can positively impact their emotional and mental health.
Kids Helpline counsellors interact with children in their own classrooms, via video link or phone. Teachers work with the counsellor to develop the session based on the needs of the students, and play an important role in co-facilitating the session. Discussions help children develop their skills, resilience and ability to reach out for help when needed.
