ReachOut’s survival guide for online learning

ReachOut is Australia’s leading online mental health service for young people and their parents. ReachOut Schools provides free, flexible resources for teachers to help them support their students, parents and carers. 

It’s been an incredibly hard year for school communities as they’ve sought to adapt to online learning and deal with COVID-19 restrictions in different ways across the country. As exam time rolls around, teachers are trying hard to support stressed students. 

ReachOut’s lesson plan will help students identify the impact study stress can have on their health, and go through practical strategies for dealing with that stress.

This year has seen a significant increase in students’ study stress, and many are not seeking professional support. ReachOut has put together a guide for surviving online learning which features study tips, links to lots of helpful resources as well as some fun content such as playlists.

Online learning has also been stressful and overwhelming for families. ReachOut’s online learning guide has tips to support parents and carers to manage their own wellbeing, as well as how to support their teen through this time.

Students have told us that they have been struggling to maintain their friendships due to COVID-19 restrictions. This Wellbeing Five is a short activity that supports students to explore strategies they can use to maintain their friendships during this stressful time.
