about us...We believe some weird things...
At Confidence Hackers we believe (weirdly) that an ounce of prevention is still better than a pound of cure… so we help young people navigate through study, life and beyond by giving them the tools and skills to make better decisions for themselves.
We are driven to do this because research proves:
= Suicide is the leading underlying cause of death for young people
= 250,000 students in Australia are struggling with mental ill-health
= Twice the number of students are experiencing poor mental health than poor physical health
= 84% of students with mental ill-health withdraw from study
= 20% of young people are too embarrassed to ask for help
= 25% of young women are anxious
= Depression is continuing to increase in young people
= 26% of young people have mental ill-health in any given year
All students and young people, but especially students living away from home are particularly vulnerable to mental ill-health. Being distanced from the support networks of family, friends, pets, routines and the certainty of everything ‘known’ creates additional stress and pressure points.
So we serve student accommodation providers (and their staff), universities, high schools, sporting clubs, graduate programs, and anyone that works with young people, in a fun and engaging way.
“We hosted Anita at Journal and she had an immediate positive impact on our residents. Her content is presented in a fun and engaging manner, whilst also creating a safe space for students to share their experiences. We will definitely be incorporating Anita into our programming in the future.”
We operate in most locations around Australia, or contact us for other delivery options such as webinar or custom branded online courses/apps etc.
Just like you don’t get a six pack by going to the gym once, resilience and mental well-being training shouldn’t be a once a year offering. We make it super simple for you by taking care of everything, so you can get back to doing the stuff that you’re actually meant to be doing!
We can also arrange 1:1 or small group mental well-being, confidence and resilience coaching for your staff and RA & staff training.
