Our workshops are designed to enable teachers and school staff to implement the Aussie Optimism programs effectively.

The workshops provide background information on mental health and mental health promotion, as well as information about program content and implementation. You’ll have plenty of opportunity to practice activities from the program, so you feel ready to use them in class.

We offer several one-day workshops on campus each year. Our trainers at the Department of Education, Catholic Education and AISWA run additional workshops in schools.
