Local news: Conversations for Change - free resource for those who work with young people 

The Conversations for Change resource has been created by Mind and Body Consultants, as part of the Like Minds, Like Mine programme which is managed by the Health Promotions Agency (HPA). 

It is designed to reduce stigma and discrimination connected to mental distress and to increase social inclusion.

It contains comprehensive facilitator's guides to five group activities which challenge stigma and discrimination, and generate safe conversations about mental distress.

The resource aims to encourage young people to reach out for support, and to include and support each other. The activities are creative, lively, and easy to implement.

All resources are fully downloadable at rethink.org.nz/Conversationsforchange


 

MentorInternational news: Growth Mindset for Mentors Toolkit

MENTOR (USA) has released the beta version of the Growth Mindset for Mentors Toolkit, developed in coordination with Stanford University’s PERTS Lab and City Year. This online resource shows mentors how to guide their mentees in developing perseverance, self-reflection, and positive decision-making. The Raikes Foundation supported this initiative to help create an online resource that applies the principles of Growth Mindset to mentoring relationships and shows mentors how to guide their mentees in developing perseverance, self-reflection, and positive decision-making by cultivating a growth mindset.
