2021 Boss Brain project launched

With things looking bright for the new school year now underway, we are delighted to have this week launched the 2021 Boss Brain project with two local secondary schools.

Boss Brain is our youth mental health initiative to work with local secondary schools to improve the mental health and wellbeing of students.

Brighton Secondary College Boss Brain students celebrate their first session.

This year, 65 students from years 11 and 12 at Brighton Secondary College and Sandringham College, will take part in the program that aims to give them the skills to recognise and respond to mental health issues in their school community.

The program kicked off with teen mental health first aid training for all the participants.

This vital project is delivered in partnership with Headspace Elsternwick/Bentleigh Branch, Bayside City Council Youth Services, Glen Eira Council and BGKLLEN.

Boss Brain is supported by Bendigo Bank Bayside Community Cluster through their Community Grants initiative.
