Supporting young people in their communities

FRIENDS For Life Resilience

The FRIENDS programmes are a series of emotional reilience programmes developed in Australia by Clinical Psychologist, Dr Paula Barrett​, to prevent and provide early help for stress, anxiety and depression. Based on the same theoretical model as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, the FRIENDS programmes look at how the body, mind and behaviour interact to influence how stress and anxiety is experienced.

Variations of the programme are delivered to different age groups to ensure sessions are fun and engaging. Sessions develop core emotional skills following the 7 steps of the FRIENDS plan and culminate in the children devising their own coping plans.

  • Prevents anxiety and depression

Target age range: 5 years to 11 years
