Through our partnership with Winc, we’ve been able to develop ‘NIP it in the Bud!’ - a set of resources specially designed for secondary school teachers to help build mental health literacy in young people and their families.

Winc is a workplace support company, freeing educators to do what they do best by taking care of everything a school needs to work. Winc partners with schools all around the country and are backed by Australia’s leading education brands that teachers know and love. From school essentials and services like print and marketing, to demonstrating what's possible with our technology and furniture solutions, Winc has everything for education - all in one place.

Thanks to support from Winc, headspace is launching a national initiative called NIP it in the bud. An evidence-based framework for learning communities and families to recognise and respond to young people at risk.

NIP it in the bud can help you Notice changes in mood and behaviour, Inquire sensitively and competently and Provide information to help young people access the right support.    
We’ve created resources for secondary schools including posters and factsheets for both educators and families/carers of students to help build skills to use the NIP it in the bud approach, which will help young people to nip potential problems in the bud before they grow. 
Thank you to Winc Australia for their support.
