- Deadly Choices Healthy Lifestyle Program: Expression of Interest
Southern High Schools & Colleges - final reminder to submit your Expression of Interest for Deadly Choices amazing Healthy Lifestyle Program (HLP) for 2023!
The HLP is a health education and capacity development program aimed at supporting First Nations students to be positive role models and mentors for their peer groups, family, and community by leading a healthy lifestyle.
It is delivered over eight sessions in a flexible manner to suit each school's environment and timetable, and covers a range of healthy lifestyle education and behaviour change topics including:
- Chronic disease
- Tobacco cessation
- Physical activity
- Harmful substances
- Healthy relationships
- Access and health checks
- Reward for completion: Education Program shirt
- Develop links with your local Community Controlled Health Service, which provide a range of supports including Social Health Teams, Aboriginal Health Workers, Allied Health professionals etc.
- Pre- and post-program evaluation conducted each term (note: to analyse the program and support ongoing improvements, ethics approval to conduct research will be sought as part of the program consent process)
The HLP has been running with great success for the past two years and has seen the Deadly Choices team visit 17 different schools across southern Tasmania. From those schools, almost 400 students have completed the program.
Due to continued growth of the HLP and the small Deadly Choices Team, a limited number of programs are avaible so priority will go to:
- Schools that are yet to have the Healthy Lifestyle Program
- Schools that have a high Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander identified population
All schools will be considered, and if your school isn’t booked in for 2023, the school will be placed on a cancellation list and given priority for 2024.
