We are excited to have OurFutures Institute work with our school to deliver evidence-based, curriculum-aligned substance use and mental health programs for our students.
The learning is delivered through interactive cartoon education modules that young people identify with, using a social influence and harm minimisation approach. By focusing on prevention, OurFutures looks to step in before harmful patterns of substance use start.
The award-winning programs have been developed over two decades of rigorous research, and were co-designed with more than 200 young people and 390 teachers. They have proven efficacy from 8 clinical trials with 240 schools and 21,000 students. The modules consist of alcohol, substance use, and mental health education, with more on the way soon.
The prevention education covers curriculum relevant content including: alcohol prevention education and harms; Cannabis and Drug prevention education and harms; and Mental Health wellbeing.
In recognition of the rising vaping crisis, OurFutures has taken action by developing Australia's most rigorous evaluation of a vaping prevention program.
We’re so happy to be able to set up our students for a bright and healthy future with OurFuture’s innovative prevention education!
