Finding the support available can be a time-consuming and daunting exercise. Particularly for people who use English As Second Language (EASL), the added challenges may mean they often have low awareness of support available.
One of the many ways that Resilience Together Association helps to strength personal resilience is by increasing awareness of the support available for your wellbeing.
Did you know: For supporting your children’s wellbeing, you can utilise ‘Wellbeing Nurses’ who are available in NSW schools as part of NSW Government’s ‘Wellbeing and Health In-reach Nurse Coordinator program’?
“The Wellbeing and Health In-reach Nurse Coordinator program is a partnership between NSW Health and the NSW Department of Education. The program establishes a Wellbeing Nurse position in selected metropolitan, regional and rural communities in NSW to work with identified secondary and primary schools.
Wellbeing Nurses are employed by NSW Health and co-located in schools.
