Helping Communities and Carers to address Major Societal Issues

The Gr8 4 Life® program has been developed by John Haines for teenagers, young people and adults to learn strategies in tackling the major issues of Drugs, Alcohol, Depression and Suicide Prevention in a simple, down-to-earth, well-structured short course.

Teenagers, young people and adults face many challenges in today’s world and may not know where to find vital information or get help with issues such as drugs, alcohol, depression and suicide prevention strategies when needed.

The GR8 4 Life® program has been developed by John Haines to help communities and their carers to address these issues by providing them with a simple, down-to-earth and well-structured short course.

This program is a 1.5 hour information session undertaken by peer delivery.

Each student receives a copy of the GR8 4 Life Learner Guide which is a comprehensive useful resource covering a wide range of life-threatening topics in order to provide readers with knowledge on what to do in various serious situations, including helpful links on where to seek help.

"CACH recommend and support the GR8 4 Life program whole heartily and have no doubt that this program will assist in arming our youth and community members with information required to keep safe if not reconsider these harmful issues facing them today and into the future."
