The aim of our workshops is to educate program participants on the importance of mental health & wellbeing, foster positive psychological wellbeing, and provide participants with a suite of tools and techniques that can be utilised to increase resilience in times of disruption and change, and assist in their own personal growth & development.
Our programs meet the needs of our individual audiences and include (but are certainly not limited to) keynote presentations, workshops and webinars on a wide range of mental health and wellbeing topics.

We believe by making available our programs to a wide range of schools we are creating a powerful platform for Western Australian youth to grow as individuals, and the flow on effect of us learning to be our best selves, is that we can help others and our community.

The ‘RISEUP’ Schools program provided our students with an interactive and engaging workshop that included vital key messages around building resilience, the benefits of keeping mentally and physically healthy and the importance of reducing stigma surrounding the topic of mental health.
I couldn’t thank Greg and his team enough for their contribution to the education of today's youth; for sharing their personal journeys, for challenging our students to identify and celebrate the positive traits they possess and inspiring them to recognise that when life gets dark, there is always hope.

Thanks for coming out to talk to our upper school kids today, Brad. You were engaging and definitely had them all thinking.
We highly recommend Brad and A Stitch in Time to come out and speak to your school. The way Brad interacted with the kids allowed them to confidently ask questions and reflect on themselves. Their questions and comments at the end showed that the themes Brad intended to get through were spot on. It’s hard to get speakers to specifically target resilience and self control and be relatable to children but Brad’s visit was definitely perfect for our kids.

As an experienced school administrator in lower socioeconomic high schools I highly rate the value of A Stitch In Time Mental Health Education programs. The presentations to students in Years 7 to 12 by Greg Hire and Brad Robbins were not only engaging for students, many of whom come from less than positive home lives, but also promoted an atmosphere of open communication.
Many of the anecdotes conveyed “we are all in this together” and students felt supported to be themselves as they faced challenges in their lives. I observed first-hand the registering by many students that they were not alone and this holds tremendous value for many disadvantaged young people.

Our presentations are not only inspiring in nature, as they are presented by living athletes who have real life experience of mental health issues at times, but the content of each presentation is grounded in evidence and overseen by our resident ASIT psychologist. At the end of the day, these presentations are about the participants, and they will walk away with actionable steps to facilitate positive mental health in their own personal lives.
We understand that each and every school has different issues that they are focusing on at different times. We are happy to discuss what your current issues are, and how we can adapt our presentations to help solve these problems. Talk to us more about this.
We certainly do. We can run all of our students workshops for parents & teachers too, so that everyone gets to learn what the students are learning. We feel this is extremely important, and helps students to implement what they have learned at home and in the classroom. For our teachers, we also have a ‘The Thriving Teacher’ professional development workshop that is highly sought after for training and development days.
