Heads Up: Skills for life resource


Whilst working with the NSW Department of Education and Training PDHPE Unit, Janice was employed to lead the development of the Heads Up: Skills for Life resource for ReachOut.com by Inspire Foundation.

The resource is aimed at Year 9 and 10 students and focuses on developing help seeking and critical mental health literacy skills. The resource is driven by a process described in the resource as key actions or steps. Students work through activities linked to each step of the process developing and enhancing their knowledge in relation to selected adolescent health issues whilst also developing skills such as critical health literacy, communication, problem solving, decision-making and help seeking skills.
