Project Description

The aim of this research project is to develop and evaluate Rural Aid’s School Wellbeing Program, targeting primary school students located in rural New South Wales and Victoria. Over the course of 12 months, we intend to work alongside Rural Aid and community stakeholders to develop a tailored wellbeing workbook of interactive activities designed to promote rural children’s mental health literacy, resilience and adaptive coping strategies. The methodology will draw on a five-stage co-design model to develop, deliver and evaluate the Rural Aid School Wellbeing Program. Stage 1: Obtain Ethical Approval and Establish Stakeholder Reference Group; Stage 2: Commence Co-Design to inform Draft Wellbeing Program; Stage 3: Develop the Wellbeing Program; Stage 4: Deliver and Validate the Program; Stage 5: Disseminate Findings.
