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.
Learn how educators and parents can build mental and emotional resilience into a child's life with simple strategies around healthy food, drink choices, good sleep routines and relationship building.
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.
