Helping kiwi kids develop positive mental health, for life.
50% of mental health conditions start before the age of 12
1 in 4 young people will experience a mental health issue before the age of 18
Research shows that the “development of emotional self-regulation in childhood is a core determinant of adolescent mental health.”
Simply put - when tamariki learn how to manage their big feelings, it has a huge impact and life long positive benefits to their mental health.
FFL is passionate about helping tamariki all around Aotearoa understand and learn to manage their big feelings, from a young age. We do this by offering Teacher training, parents webinars, school presentations and free online resources for schools, whanau, and everyone who is working with children.
