• The importance of yarning with family and friends
• How to deal with your own worries
• Dealing with today’s social and emotional wellbeing challenges that can affect you, your family, and your community
• Improving your awareness and understanding of what causes depression, anxiety and suicide
• Understanding how changes in your life might stress you out
• Problems like drugs, alcohol and bullying worries
• Connecting with your culture and country as a way of staying strong.
