An evidence-based, comprehensive, common language mental health and wellbeing approach
Prime7 News recently featured how Positive Living Skills is supporting the region in their nightly news bulletin
"PLS supports the mental wellbeing and the workload of educators. The program is delivered to children and their families via the local early learning centres and primary schools. Because all resources are fully scripted and mapped to curriculums, educators can meet their teaching requirements while feeling confident that they are supporting their communities to build skills for long term mental wellbeing."
Possa Bill is our program mascot, who stands for growth mindset, kindness, confidence, peer support and more.
Educators engage and connect with children using the Possa Bill puppet throughout group or playtime or learning experience activities. Possa Bill role play options make it easy for educators to personalise or extend the learning experiences and embed the positive concepts.
