Traditional community mental health initiatives focus on managing mental illnesses after the symptoms become apparent.
Whilst billions of dollars are poured into these programs every year, the mental health and well-being of the global community is continually getting worse and those diagnosed are getting younger every year. Almost one in seven (13.9%) 4-17 year-olds were assessed as having mental disorders
in the previous 12 months.
We, at the Institute, believe educators and parents can build mental and emotional resilience into a child's life with simple strategies around healthy food, drink choices and establishing good sleep routines.
Small changes to hydration, nutrition, sleep habits and sugar consumption can radically improve brain health and improve moods and behaviour. Ensuring that the foundational 'Maslow's Basement' needs are met will build both mental and emotional resilience and boost the immune system.These foundational strategies build resilience for the stresses of teenage years and into adulthood.
We believe early education will build resilience and give people the skills to manage childrens mental health which will reduce the incidences of teenage self harm, combat many social dysfunctions and addictive behaviours, and improve community health and well-being.Mental Health and Emotional Well-being is founded on Nutrition, Hydration and Sleep - FOOD - WATER - SLEEP
