Improving mental health - Alexandra Secondary College
This project supported the students of Alexandra Secondary School by providing an on site counsellor. A counsellor worked with students and their families to improve their mental health and day-to-day functioning.
By helping young people to develop positive mental health their learning outcomes and contributions to community capacity and personal resilience are improved. Increasing the counselling and support options for young people is in line with several of the key priorities highlighted in the Murrindindi Shire Council Plan 2013 – 2017, and the Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan 2013 – 2017.
