Managing Stress and Anxiety Toolkit
Understanding Stress and Anxiety

The Managing Stress and Anxiety Workshops are based on the Managing Stress and Anxiety Teacher Resource Kit developed with the Anxiety Recovery Centre Victoria. These workshops build self awareness around personal stress and responses to stress in order to build a toolkit of a range of strategies to manage stress in everyday life. The workshops are aligned with a resource pack for further support to manage stress.

The Anti- Anxiety Card (green) was first developed in 2018 with the Headspace Elsternwick and young people. In 2019 five new anti anxiety cards were designed by young people for young people encompassing the strategies explored throughout the Managing Stress and Anxiety Workshops. These cards are an accessible resource and reminder to all of the ways to manage stress and care for oneself.
