BUILDING MITEY CHILDREN
Teachers, parents and experts all agree. Mental health education has never been more crucial for our children. Mitey is an evidence based, school wide approach to teaching mental health education which is built around the NZ Curriculum.
FOR YEARS 1-8
Mitey targets NZ children from Years 1-8 to help them build the necessary and age appropriate skills, knowledge and understanding they need to nurture their own emotional wellbeing and those of others.
WHY NEW ZEALAND NEEDS MITEY
The last few years have brought increased awareness of the alarming number of children experiencing mental health issues in New Zealand. Teachers know that anxious and unhappy children find it difficult to learn. If children are mentally and emotionally healthy they are better equipped to face the challenges life brings.
