Wellbeing in Schools
With depression, anxiety and mental health problems on the rise, there is no question that we need a reactive approach that can help our youth recover from mental illness. But, the goal does not end there. We now have scientific research showing that we can shift the goal from simply surviving to thriving.
Wellbeing in education is for leaders, students, teachers, staff, parents, the whole school, and the local community. Taking a more proactive approach to building mental fitness skills helps to ensure staff
and students are fit for school and fit for life. Appli is your ‘one-stop shop’ for wellbeing in early childhood, K-12 and higher education institutions offering not just training but a whole-school, sustainable wellbeing strategy that is built to last.
