Family Connect Program
The Family Connect program provides families with a healthy emotional system to implement at home which supports listening, appreciation, emotional literacy and self-responsibility for the family. Uniquely, the whole family learns these skills together to support great relationships and good mental health outcomes.
At a time when relationships have been under great pressure, the importance of meaningful connection within families has never been more apparent. Through open, honest communication, respectful and sustainable relationships can be built and nurtured.
Relationships Australia encourages all Australians to make use of this Program, and to discover these practical tools for emotional wellbeing and resilience.
Strong Spirit Strong Minds – Stay Strong
The Stay Strong, Look After You and Your Mob campaign aims to increase knowledge of improving social and emotional well-being strategies, that support families and communities to gain and maintain their optimal level of SEWB.
The term social and emotional wellbeing (SEWB) is the preferred term as it refers to the physical wellbeing of the individual and also the social, emotional and cultural wellbeing of the whole community.
This definition recognises the importance of connection to land, culture, spirituality, ancestry, family and community.
