SenseAbility Program - beyondblue

SenseAbility is a strengths-based resilience program designed for those working with young Australians aged 12-18 years. It consists of a suite of modules developed to enhance and maintain emotional and psychological resilience.

It was created with classroom delivery in mind, but the modules can easily be adapted to benefit young people in other structured environments such as TAFEs and youth organisations.

The program is based on cognitive-behavioural principles, the evidence-based approach which says that our thoughts play a critical role in influencing feelings and consequent behaviour.

Young people who possess sound social and emotional skills are generally better able to cope with the stressors of daily life. They also tend to have better relationships with parents, teachers and peers, and perform better academically. Very importantly, having these skills makes it less likely that a young person will experience significant mental health problems in the future.

The SenseAbility Communications Portal is your gateway to accessing a range of free useful resources to support you with delivery and implementation of the SenseAbility program.

Whether you’re a staff member from a school or a community based organisation working with young people and looking for ideas on getting started, or further information on implementation of the SenseAbility program, you can select from a suite of resources that are available online to help you.
