Overcoming barriers to work and study

The HeadStrong Yarning Program is designed to help participants in overcoming work and study barriers. While the technical aspects are crucial, the foundation of our program is built on participant rapport and trust, ensuring we provide mental health support in a way that feels personal and non-clinical.

Discover a New Path to Mental Wellness with HeadStrong Yarning

Welcome to the HeadStrong Yarning program, a unique journey that intertwines traditional methodologies with innovative approaches to support mental health and learning in First Nations communities.

Our program stands out with its dual focus on the Indigenous Menzies School of Health Research’s STAY STRONG Care Plan and the Indigenous Andragogy 8-ways of learning. These time-honored methods, backed by extensive research, are tailored to address the specific challenges faced in work and study environments.

What makes us unique is our commitment to fostering deep personal connections and building trust, forming the foundation of our approach.

Stay Strong Care Plan: A Five-Step Journey to Resilience

  1. Supportive Circle: People That Keep Me Strong
    At the heart of our program is the recognition of the power of support networks. We guide you in identifying and strengthening personal connections that are essential in overcoming challenges in work and study.
  2. Resilience Resources: Things That Keep Me Strong
    We encourage the incorporation of activities and routines that nurture a positive mental state. This is facilitated within an environment that’s both supportive and understanding.
  3. Concerns Catalogue: Worries I Have
    Creating a safe space, we invite you to express any anxieties related to work or study. This fosters a culture of trust and understanding, crucial for mental well-being.
  4. Health Alert Indicators: Warning Signs I’m Getting Sick
    Our approach includes early recognition of stress signs, ensuring empathetic and personal support at every step.
  5. Goal-Setting Guide: Progress Towards Goals
    We believe in personalised goal setting that reflects your individual aspirations in work and education, guiding you towards your personal best.

Indigenous Andragogy 8-ways of Learning: Blending Personal Growth with Technical Knowledge

Our second cornerstone, the Indigenous Andragogy 8-ways of learning, is an amalgamation of technical and personal growth methodologies. It includes:

  • Storytelling and visualization for a relatable learning experience.
  • Practical and symbolic learning that aligns with your personal experiences and cultural background.
  • Environmental and community-based learning to enhance a sense of belonging and support.
