1. WHAT IS GROW YOUR MIND ABOUT?

Grow Your Mind is a positive mental health program that is all about enhancing resilience and wellbeing. It is for pre and primary school aged children, educators and parents. We link social and emotional education directly to the brain with a playful animal analogy that resonates with young and old(er).

The program is built upon four pillars to promote mental health and wellbeing: positive psychology, social and emotional learning, public health and neuroscience. The program draws on the Collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional Learning’s (CASEL) model of the 5 social and emotional learning competencies (self-awareness, social awareness, self-management, responsible decision-making, and relationship skills) to help children. The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) underpins the pre-primary and primary school curriculum.

Grow Your Mind brings together a range of wellbeing topics such as growth mindset, character strength education, gratitude, mindfulness, healthy relationships and emotional regulation and ties it back to basic neuroscience.  Grow Your Mind is one of a small number of programs recognised by beyond Blue’s BeYou directory.
