Get Growing

The Get Growing program is a specialised program for school aged participants

The Get Growing program has been developed to meet the needs of young people, aged from 11 to 17 years old.  Early intervention for school aged participants can help to prevent mild depression which can often develop into deep despair.

The Get Growing program is based on the Australian Curriculum and runs over 10 weeks with a new topic explored each week including:

  • Resilience
  • Feelings
  • Friendship
  • Problem solving
  • Safety
  • Personal value
  • Strengths
  • Goals
  • Stress
  • Dealing with a crisis

Get Growing is facilitated by a specially trained program worker and the supportive group program helps young people build important friendships. The small group environment also creates a supportive space where participants can safely share their stories and challenges. 

There’s often only help available to young people who have severe and urgent needs.  Get Growing is targeted at young people who may be at risk to prevent or minimise mental health issues before their mental health declines or reaches crisis point.
