Hero High

Hero High is zero2hero’s schools program, delivering a range of innovative and creative workshops on mental health and leadership that meet young people where they are to increase engagement and impact.

About Hero High

With all programs hosted by our team of trained speakers and facilitators, and with age-specific, as well as parent and staff workshop options available, zero2hero offers a number of opportunities for schools to communicate with their students about mental health and leadership in an engaging and effective way.

At zero2hero, we’re passionate about making mental health education available for all students in WA, and as part of that objective, our Hero High 101 programs, ‘In Your Head’, and ‘Love Yourself’, are available free-of charge. To support us in doing this, we’ve also developed the Hero High + programs, which schools and community groups can access for a fee.

Additionally, if you can’t find what you’re looking for, and you want us to tailor a program to meet your school’s specific need, we’d love to hear from you!

Depending on available time, all Hero High programs can run for 30, 45 or 60 minutes, and all zero2hero facilitators, speakers, and volunteers have an up to date police clearance and working with children check.

Hero High 101

Did you know that more people die by suicide each year than on our roads?

In order to prevent this, it’s crucial that we educate the younger generation on the facts they need to know, as well as the actions they need to take, if they or someone they know is experiencing mental health concerns.

This program takes away the stigma that surrounds suicide and mental illness and aims to empower young people to seek help.

Preventing suicide in our country begins with educating and engaging young people in a conversation about mental health, and ‘In your Head’ has been designed to assist young people in understanding that mental illness is just that – an illness.

During the workshop, we look at the contributing factors of mental illness and the warning signs of suicide, as well as helping students to understand that it’s ok not to be ok and to identify the support network that is available to them.

We all know how to look after our physical health, but how much do we know about looking after our mental health?

Just as exercise and nutrition are vital to good physical health, self-care and resilience are essential to good mental health, and in ‘Love Yourself’ we cover the need-to-knows of these two areas extensively.

Available as either a presentation or an interactive workshop where students complete a range of activities, during this program we look at the different ways people can care for their body and mind, and we assist students in identifying which areas they would like to focus on.

Hero High +

We explore different kinds of personality types and have students identify theirs. Knowing yourself is the first step to growing yourself.

Once you know what you value, decisions are easy to make.

Learn what all leaders need and how to get it.

How do I start something worth starting?

We explore the different Love Languages and apply them to the lives and families of students.

Injury, rejection, loss and teamwork – all of these require the right frame of mind. The perfect workshop for a sporting team or club.

Parents & Staff

Central to the success of our programs are the parents and staff associated with the schools we work with and the workshops we run are not just relevant to young people, but also the adults in their lives. Additionally, we know that parents and teachers have just as many questions about youth mental health as teenagers do, and we’re more than happy to answer them.

Our Parent & Staff workshops are flexible in both format and length, and can be run simultaneously with student workshops, or individually as requested, with simple one-hour programs and personalised options available.

With a strong background in events, and the ability to coordinate a range of speakers and facilitators, we can also create an event suited to your school or community group, with a leadership day, mental health week, or youth week just a few of the possibilities.

HERO PRIMARY

We believe that when it comes to mental health awareness, early education is key and as part of the Hero High program, we also run age-specific workshops for students in years 5 and 6, as well as opening up zero2hero Day for primary schools.
