Making Friends With Worry – School Program

Making Friends with Worry is a fun and interactive educational program that explores worry and anxiety with primary school aged children. The program focuses on understanding and normalising worry as well as providing insight into what happens in our brain and body when we experience worry or anxiety.

The objective of the program is to help children to understand how worry affects us, and to learn strategies to utilise when worry persists. We explore how sharing our worries helps us to manage them, and we encourage help seeking behaviour. We give children the opportunity to practise calming strategies together within the session, with resources for teachers to help children consolidate their learning.

This program is delivered by Bronwyn, Community Health Nurse and Helen, Children’s Counsellor from CHIRP Community Health and is suitable for primary school aged children in year Kindergarten to Grade 6.

SAVE OUR LOCAL COMMUNITY HEALTH SERVICES

For 35 years, the communities of Mount Alexander Shire have known who to turn to when they need help.

Sadly, CHIRP may not be around to turn to in future.

Government funding has not kept pace with the rising cost of delivering community health services.
This is happening everywhere, but smaller rural services like ours are the hardest hit.

We need a commitment from the Victorian Government, so we can maintain our services
and not be forced to close our doors.
