Schools Program

SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY delivers a free Schools Program for students Grades 9 – 12 that raises mental health awareness and builds student resilience and confidence to seek help and look after their mental health.

The team uses an evidence-informed universal awareness approach to deliver a strong message that it is ok not to be ok and that we can all play a role in promoting mental health at school.

The program is based around Mitch’s personal story, and incorporates storytelling, information-sharing and interactive activities.

The Program also offers free teacher and parent sessions to schools that build mental health awareness and information on how to help young people.

The Schools Program is funded and supported by the Tasmania Government Department of Education and offered to eligible Department of Education schools.
