SchoolTV is an excellent resource designed for parents and schools to assist in raising happy, well and resilient youth.

Wellbeing cannot exist just in your own head. Well-being is a combination of feeling good as well as actually having meaning, good relationships and accomplishment.

Dr. Martin Seligman

SchoolTV is an online resource designed to inform, educate and empower parents, teachers and other community members about some of the challenges around raising safe, happy and resilient young people. It is a fresh approach to the growing issues and pressures faced by Australian youth.

The features of SchoolTV include video based content and leading youth research and strategies on topics such as digital reputation, sexting, screen addiction, cyberbullying, youth anxiety and self harm. Some of Australia’s leading academics, specialists and authorities in youth health and wellbeing contribute to SchoolTV, with changes to their focus monthly.

SchoolTV will publish their next Special Report at the commencement of Term Three, with the topic of School Refusal which is becoming an increasing problem for many parents, carers, teachers and students alike. In the meantime, you can access in excess of 30 previous SchoolTV topics from the archives.
