‘Children’s special feature’
Act Belong Commit has partnered with Seven West Media Education to bring families and schools a three part feature in The Sunday Times giving ideas, tips and resources to protect children's mental health and wellbeing.
Children’s special three part series
There has never been a more important time to focus on student mental health and wellbeing.
In answer to this call, Act Belong Commit partnered with Seven West Media Education on an exciting special feature for children focusing on student wellbeing, student wellbeing, mental health and resilience, closely tied to the Act Belong Commit message.
The 4 page lift-out appeared in The Sunday Times across three consecutive weekends in Feb/March this year and was also packaged up and delivered to multiple classrooms across WA.
The Act Belong Commit special feature explores proactive ways to help protect and promote mental wellbeing, such as getting active, connecting with others and helping your community. Not only do these actions make you feel good, they also develop resilience, and a strong sense of self-worth and belonging. The three part series focused on the following:
- “Do something!” ACT – Sunday 20th February
- “Get connected!” BELONG – Sunday 27th February
- “Make it meaningful!” COMMIT – Sunday 6th March
Class sets of 35 copies of each edition of The Sunday Times along with merit stickers and educational posters were delivered schools who requested them from Seven West Media Education.
