Thriving Minds

How can you tell if things aren’t going so well for you or a mate?

How can you access support during tough times, or help your friends to?

Valley Youth’s Thriving Minds program trains young people, their teachers, parents and carers in Mental Health First Aid to:

  • - Identify early signs of when young people are finding life tough
  • - Understand mental health situations
  • - Assess how serious things are
  • - Know what to do in a crisis and the best places to get help


The program started as a pilot in select schools around Moonee Valley in 2018. Since then, we have delivered Teen and Youth Mental Health First Aid to students, teachers and parents across Moonee Valley. During the pandemic, training was delivered online.

If you’d like your school to be a part of the program, please contact us at
