Schools and families

Healthy school and family environments help children thrive while preventing mental illness and suicide.


Coping Schools is the Care Collaborate Connect schools and families solution package to help children learn and use healthy coping skills, get support from others when needed and know how to support their family and friends.

We believe that health and wellbeing is something children learn from their environment, not something that is taught. That’s why we work with schools, teachers, parents, and carers to create a supportive environment where children thrive.

Our solution includes:

  • Training: We train school staff, parents and carers, how to recognise the signs of unpleasant emotions in children, how to talk to children about their emotions, and how to support children to cope with emotions in a  healthy way.
  • Coping skills: We train teachers how to teach children to manage emotions, solve problems and support one other
  • Consultancy: We provide expertise and support to the school community to develop strategies, policies and procedures that make a real difference to community health and wellbeing.

What do people think of the training?

“This program has been the most empowering suicide prevention training I’ve completed. Thank you.”

“The Care Collaborate Connect suicide prevention program is changing the way we respond to students in distress, ensuring our focus is consumer-centred and evidence-based. It’s led to a rethink of our approach and we’ll offer better support as a result.”

“This training has prepared me well and made me more confident to support people who have suicidal thoughts. I also learnt more about self-care.”
