Kids Helpline @ School offers Australian primary schools a video or phone link classroom session with a Kids Helpline Counsellor.
How does it work?
The sessions give students the opportunity to talk with a counsellor in a group discussion about topics impacting on the lives of primary school students.
Teachers work with a Kids Helpline Counsellor to deliver the classroom session and are provided with activities and resources to help prepare for the video or phone link up.
The classroom sessions aim to increase each participant's knowledge about the topic and enhance their capacity to deal with the issue at school and in their lives. Sessions are designed with the general capabilities of the Australian curriculum in mind. For further information about curriculum content please see the Session Guidelines.
When teachers book a session, Kids Helpline will make contact to discuss times and content.

Does the session include one-on-one support?
The classroom based sessions do not offer individual counselling. For private and confidential one-on-one counselling children and young people are encouraged to contact Kids Helpline via free call 1800 55 1800 or access our web or email counselling.
If a student expresses the need for assistance during the session, our counsellor will be available to support the teacher following the session.
