Mental Health initiative

Spielwelt has recently established a relationship with BeYou, a national mental health initiative with an enormous number of resources for families and teachers, to promote and protect children’s mental health and well-being.

Well-being and learning can’t be separated, because well-being underpins the way children feel about themselves and how they relate to others.  It affects how children think, learn and engage.

At our German Playschool and Pfadfinder scout group, we promote healthy messages throughout each session, touching on our favourite topics:  resiliance, affirmation, inclusivity, adaptability, respect, friendship, kindness,  compassion, being mindful, healthy eating, self-belief and more.  These help build children up, and gives them tools to cope with  the epidemic of anxiety and depression which has been emerging in Western societies in recent years.

We are delighted to have the support of our very own mental health coordinator, who can be reached on mental.health@spielwelt.org.au

We also have a support library and help pages for families who may be experiencing depression, anxiety, family violence, separation, dying/death of a loved one, addiction, or other stressful situations.  Read on by clicking the square below, and talk to the teachers or director.  We can help you to help your child.
