Strong Foundations is a school-based program designed to support the Social and Emotional Wellbeing of Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander students aged 8 – 13 within the Shoalhaven region of NSW. We provide group sessions, individual counselling, and community education. Our aim is to raise awareness of mental health wellbeing, encourage help seeking behaviours, increase resilience and build stronger communities.

Strong Foundations uses a tailored approach for each group session, incorporating outdoor group activities as well as cultural themed art & craft, drawing on key principals of “Mind Matters” and “Aussie Optimism”

* Individual counselling is based on referral

The program aims to promote:

  • Positive Thinking
  • Physical Wellbeing
  • Building Support Pathways
  • Understanding Self, Others & Culture
  • Cultural Identity & Help Seeking
  • Positive Self Esteem
  • Communicating With Others
