LET'S FOCUS ON STRENGTH & RESILIENCE
What do you do to get through tough times?
Over the last six months we have been engaging children and young people in conversations about mental well-being and what individuals do to get through tough times. Our "Weave Survival Tips" campaign has responded to the need to focus on people's strengths and resilience, and started to shift the conversation about mental health.
We have a responsibility as a community to come together to create an environment for our children and young people to feel safe and inspired to tune into what works for them. We have a responsibility to create a shared experience of survival.
It's been heartwarming to see everyone's tips and thoughtful messages. We want to continue building a strong connected community that is inclusive, supportive and resilient.
We know that young people are faced with many challenges and that sadly, suicide rates amongst young people are on the rise. Suicide is the leading cause of death among young people 15-24 years old. In Indigenous communities suicide rates are approximately 40% higher than the rates for non-Indigenous people. 75% of mental health issues emerge before the age of 25. Campaigns like "Weave Survival Tips" create a space to have a conversation and connect with strategies that work. We want everyone to join with us and get involved in helping raise mental health awareness and be proactive in nurturing each others' strengths and resilience.
